    Default Swarming Splits Survey - What did you do?

    For those who have done a split and either the split or the original hive swarmed, what did you do?

    1. Did you leave the old queen in the original location?

    2. How many frames did you remove from the original hive?

    3. What type of frames did you remove from the original hive?

    4. Did you leave or move the original hive from the original location?

    5. Which hive swarmed?

    6. Did you move queen cells to the split?



    For Example:

    1. Yes
    2. 4
    3. 1 frame eggs/larvae, 2 capped brood, 1 honey/pollen.
    4. No
    5. Both
    6. Yes

    Discuss if you want to provide more detail.
