Several times I have read your advice not to split until you have a big strong double deep (or eq) but that is the first time that I've heard you explain your reasoning like that. Or if you did I missed it. Thanks.In a two or three weeks the queenright side (if you introduced a queen to the queenless side perhaps it too...) will be ready to split again. In another two or three it may be ready to split again. That is the point. A split that is at critical mass can replenish itself quickly.
