I am looking into doing a split. The first group of flowers in the area are starting to dry up. I will have to get back out to see what else is getting ready to be in bloom. They have a good source of lavender at the moment.
This particular hive is located by nice large field of wildflowers and a large herb garden.
I do have one 4 foot hive which is only occupying about 2.5 feet of space and does not seem to want to go any larger. I have given them more space, but they are not moving over.
"But what's that queen doing under there w/ them too?"
You just like to think of all of us going stare crazy looking for a queen that really isn't there. One thing I learned about these photos is never to try and positively identify a queen, drone or mite unles it's very obvious.
