Re: Splits failing plz help
Make sure you still have at least two full frames of bees and brood and find the queen. If you are going to be moving them, shake in some foragers as well. Get the nucs setup in the evening and closed off with screen. Transport them in the predawn and release around 7am. Stick around to watch them orient to the new location, it's cool to watch. I imagine the bees will be pretty traumatized by the end of all this so it may take the queen a while to start laying. Bees may also blame her for the ruckus and that won't be good. I would leave a robber screen on or your entrance reducer and feed at this point but don't worry if they run out. If you have foragers and some stores, they should be ok. My nucs were taking a pint every two days but were starting to get nectar bound so I stopped. There is plenty coming in so I am not worried.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
