    Welcome to Beesource, Chblue. While it has been a milder winter than normal in my locale, we are certainly not contemplating splits here yet ;).

    Thanks, GWW. Your goal makes sense to me, and I assume you are making progress every year in getting more comb drawn out (and not destroyed by wax moths)? :lookout:
