I’ve searched to not much success. I am planning to pull supers this weekend and I would like to make the splits the next day. My concern would be would the yard be to chaotic this weekend to consider. I would be using queen cells. Pull honey Friday make splits Saturday and place cells Sunday.

Any experience with this?

I'd say go.for it. It's best to get it all done asap. If you have drones around, anytime for a split. Just feed em well. And make em.strong splits, as robbing is going to be an issue, and reduce entrances.

I agree with Rich, in my area, it is customary to split and/or requeen right after our harvest in July. Don't worry about chaos, it always settles down. You still want to be as fast and efficient as possible. Try having all of your stuff for splitting set up and ready to go so you can just drop bees in. The faster the better!
