    Default Splits & temperature

    Is it okay to make splits and checkerboard at 55 degrees F, or rather, when the bees are clustered? Or is this a really bad idea? Should the temp for splits always be when they are de-clustered (and is that 60 degrees F)?

    I don't have a problem with it. I did it Friday, although it was a shade warmer than 55. I realy think it depends on the amount of bees that you have.
    If you have a couple HB's full of bees, then I would say it is OK to split.
