    Re: possible queen cells, can I start a split

    I don't mind if I can get a split from this, If I could that would be alright. If I just let the hive be, is there anything I need to look out for or be worried about.

    Thanks, Jason

    Re: To late for SHB traps?

    That's just the thing. I didn't know if there would be a downside. This is my first year, and I didn't have SHB until recently, so I wasn't prepared for them.

    Thanks for the reply's, Jason
