I have two queens due this week. I plan to make a split and use one of the queens for that.(Russian) I know a hive should be queenless for 24 hrs before starting the introduction procedure. I'm thinking I should go ahead and make the split today so they will be ready by Tues. evening at the earliest. Not sure when the queens will be here. Thinking Wed-Fri. As long as I make sure all larvae are 4 + days old, I shouldn't have any problems in that respect? Any corrections and suggestions would be graciously appreciated.
