Re: Beginner's mistakes
Always go with your local weather.
I got the summer, Autumn and winter trend but not
yet on the Spring timing. This year the El Nino
effects messed up on my timing so have to put
back the splits for them to build up more until April.
Too early for making splits in February this year.
March is still rainy. It is not my fault that they put out
supersedure cells this early. And the weather is not ready for
the queen's mating flight. Spring blooming is almost done. I see
pear trees blooming but no apple yet. Will wait to see what April and
May bring us.
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
