I would like to split one of my hives and let the hive requeen itself. This same hive already made a new queen last year when I believe that they killed the original queen. I live in Minnesota and I was told that local queens seem to do better surviving the winter than queens from other states. I am wondering what my chances are that this will work? Did I just get lucky last time that they were able to requeen themselves? I have 3 hives, so if I lose 1 it’s not the end of the world. This is just a hobby for me.
