Re: Beginning Beekeeping Treatment Free
Late splits need drawn comb and lots of feeding to be successful. But otherwise, they will do fine until the queen shuts down for winter. July is the Richmond area's best month for summer walkaway splits. After that, you need a queen. After the end of August, you are wasting time and resources.

Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
