I have two hives that i put on apivar. Bee friend came over to help me move the boxes cause im trying to reduce their workforce before i requeen them (They're evil).. but they're on apivar for mites..

so my friend said we could further reduce the workforce by splitting them and getting them to make new queens and then requeen them with nice queens from my main yard.. then i would have 4 hives..

basically wondering about splitting while on apivar..
