What are some of yall favorite swarm prevention methods. I have tried quit a few different ones over the years and have not found a certain one that i stick to. I go back and forth between defferent ones. I found the cutdown split to be affective but i dont like to weakend my hives before a honey flow. The other one i found to be affective is to just open up the brood nest with empty frames and supering early. For some reason this year seemed to be a verry swarmy year in my area. So which method is yall favorite to use.
