Re: Increasing broodnest in preparation for post flow split
I would do it still in the flow. You are not going to get a lot of honey as the flow slows, brood rearing can eat up eveything in the house if she does not slow down. Robbing with no flow is not a rooky happy time.
You only need to raise queens in one hive, that is what I mean by no impact to (those two until you have capped cells).
You are requeening your three hives by vertical split , I've got that right?
It is not true that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
They can learn them, they just can't do them.
