Hey guys, I apologise if this has been discussed before, but I wanted to get opinions on the best way to prevent the original colony sending out a swarm with it's first virgin queen after the colony was split. I'm talking about hives that you wouldn't be able to get to very frequently so you could go back and reduce queen cells after splitting. Is there a way to set up the two halves in a way that minimizes the risk of swarming? I assume it has something to do with not leaving the original colony too strong and overpopulated by the time the first queen hatches, maybe shake out as much nurse bees as possible to the old queen hive? Leaving the queen cell hive with a lot of empty comb might be another idea, keeping the foragers busy thinking there's plenty of space to have fill up.
