Re: Recognizing Signs of Swarm Prep
I am Vancouver. Have been through one spring...last year. Last year I opened my hives mid April. This year I will go in sooner as some hives seem very active. However we are still freezing at night.
If one sees drones and reasonable populations is it safe to split when it is freezing overnight?
Also I will be looking to put nucs into full sized hives but don't know when it is safe to do that.
Advice is more than welcome.
