Each location is different. But it is too late in the year for walk away splits. In all reality, it is getting too late for splits in general here.So my thought is to pull these frames with foundation and do two walk away splits right back into the same jester nuc boxes they came in at the end of July, early August. Thoughts about this?
Typically, our bees stop drawing new comb about now. Sometimes if we have a good fall flow they will pull new comb.
Consider talking with some local beeks who like to split. A lot of beeks make summer splits, most really don't. Wish we could have made more summer splits here.
