I am new this year and currently have 5 hives. Three from packs and 2 from nucs. Two of the hives currently have drawn out both deeps and I added a super on each two days ago. I added a second brood box on the third and the forth hive is almost ready for a super. My fifth hive is a little slow as it is having an issue with Chalk brood. It is not in the same yard as the other four. I added a second brood box to her yesterday. My question is would it be wise or unwise to try and make a split or two from the strongest hives at this time of the year? Or should I just ride it out and hope for a small honey crop and worry about adding to the yard with splits after my first winter?
Thanks for the help!
