I recently got 12 carniolan hives in a deep box and was wanting to split them after the next honey flow. Can anybody tell me who the best queen breeders are for NW carniolans? I also heard in a nut shell that managing carniolans is like managing russians, except they are gentle. I heard/read that they may be 3 frames in a box in late february and then in march a week or two later they are a full box of bees and swarming. I have other hives that are russian and italians.
