How do you split a TBH? I only have 2 bars on each end left!
How do you deal with cross comb. All my frames are cross comb.
I'm a 2nd year beekeeper but I really have little knowledge. I took a bee course about 10 years ago, read some books etc and I thought that I would be ok but the bees have been basically taking care of themselves.
My "strong" hive has run out of space. I opened it up on Saturday with the thought of removing honey to give more space but didn't see any capped. I looked at about 3/4's of the frames and closed it back up because I didn't know what to do. I felt so helpless and disappointed in myself.. The frames had brood, drone brood, honey, pollen. At least that I'm what I'm thinking from pictures that I have viewed.. I didn't see a queen but it was kinda difficult trying to look in the cross combs. So some frames ended up getting damaged due to the cross comb.
Also, when you add TB's due you add them on each end. This is what I was doing but I don't know if that is correct..
I feel so awful for these bees... I thought that I could do this but now I'm worried that they might fly away and even worse into the neighbours yard.
