Re: Possible to mutli-task?
Your hives at 2 years are at their prime (at least that is what I gather from the Walt Wright readings) and yuo may want to consider something other than and even split. Kind of like making a smaller colonie split (nuc size) that should give you some honey and leaving the original colony for alot of honey. As MB warned watch the drift and as I say and he has said, if not the same words maybe, use that drift to your advantage. Play with it and learn, Dolittle gives a great illustrtion about switching the new colony a couple times for various reasons.
You should have no problem with what you described.
Its between you and your bees. L. Connor
