I have a huge hive that I don’t want to swarm. I’m in Kosciusko, MS. What’s the earliest I can split?

Made my first ever splits years ago (walk aways) when the Easter flowers bloomed. Worked well that year. I'm north of you, but that was like march 25 or so. Don't think I've had a year since that it woulda worked out.

I am generally able to do walk away splits around the first of April. If you have capped drone cells in your hives and daytime temps are above 65°F, you can split and be reasonably sure of success.
