    Default Exciting 2nd year hive

    I have a hive that I started last year from a 5 frame nuc, this spring it was fixing to swarm so I made 3 splits out of it (I left 10 frames in the parent hive). Since then I have preformed a cut down split on the original hive, have a 4th split, and a parent hive that is loaded (15 or 20) queen cells I can pull some of and a super full of surplus honey!

    I've also had better than usual luck making queens with splits and all this year in TN. Way to go though.
