I started beekeeping last year.I have to hives one is 2 deeps and medium and the other is 3 mediums.They look strong as they where flying yesterday,havent really opened it up just to take little peek. I have read alot about doing splits and checkerboarding and opening the blood nest. So my question is as a new beek ,what is the best way to open the blood nest and or do the checkerboarding.The one hive Im thinking I want to keep the queens generics ,she a laying machine.Should I put her in nuc with blood and let them raise there own? Thank you.
