Re: Split advice needed
LL, how did things work out with moving the queen to a different nuc?
Hagane, splits are made for different reasons and that helps determine the type of split. Moving the queen is usually a swarm prevention technique but has other applications as well, like this one. A walkaway split is an easy way for newer beeks, and some older ones, to make increases with very little effort. You give a couple of frames of bees the resources to create a new queen and start a new hive, and they do, most of the time.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
