I am in East Central WI and built a Cloake board this winter. I am anxious to try it out with one hive and hopefully make 5-6 nucs.

Just not sure if I am entering the time when I shouldn't be doing this in my area. I don't know when a summer derth hits in my area.

Thoughts ?

I am anxious to try this method because the instructions tell me to drink a beer !!!!!!
