Surely someone else has had this problem, but I can't find an answer on the threads. I'm a rank amateur, obviously, but over the past few years I've gone from 2 to 9-needing to be split into 10 hives. This is getting out of control for me! I can't keep up! I don't want to kill them but I do not know what to do! How much space does a colony need to be well nourished? I know that depends a lot on what grows hereabouts but how do I find that out? Thanks for your time! and please, spare me the ridicule. I KNOW I don't know what I'm doing!
