I thought it was too late in the year for a split. I guess I was wrong cause the bees from my strongest hive swarmed today.
The girls went up 80ft to a limb in a gum tree. To retrieve the swarm I had to shoot out a 6 inch diameter limb.
I want to thank everyone on the forum for the information they share. This is my first year beekeeping I wouldn't have known what to do. This swarm was about the size of a basketball.
