Re: Split type and when?
I did a split on a hive that exact same size yesterday, but this particular hive was so angry I didn't even begin to attempt looking for the queen. I just took off medium, took top deep and moved it to a different area of hives about 30 feet away (woa was that heavy, and I didn't carry bb or lid when carrying deep). I hope they will calm down enough that I can go through to find which one has queen on Tuesday.
