I just moved my 2 hives to my new property. It has a ton of alfalfa bloom right now. These are my first hives both started from packages in april. Today I checked one hive and found 3 queen cells on 2 different frames. Found the queen and eggs through but they haven't drawn out my second box much and back filled a lot of nectar.

Is it too late to do a cut down split in southern Idaho?

Opinions?

Thanks, Ryan

The ideal time was two weeks before the flow, which is probably past. At this point I would probably just do an even split. and you are rapidly approaching when it will be too late to let them raise their own queen.
