I have a couple of questions about doing a walk away split to get a third colony up and running.
First, is it a simple as it sounds and what are the chaces if any that the bees will fail to make a new queen?
Does it matter if the queen goes to the new hive or should she stay in the one that is being split?
When half of the frames are put in the new hive should they be pushed side by side or left apart with new frames put between them.
Thanks in advance
