    Default Splits?

    How late is too late in the season to do a split? This is my first year and want to increase my hives but don't want to set the "new" colony up for a tougher winter than necessary. I live in Kansas.

    Not too late.
    However, depending on your local flow pattern, may need to feed so the splits can grow.
    Some places are entering/entered the summer dearth already (like maybe Kansas, depending on the exact location).
    Former "smoker boy". Classic, square 12 frame Dadants >> Long hive/Short frame experimentation.
