I'm finally going to be out of school for the summer, temps are up like crazy...I have spring fever!!!!
Dad checked out the two hives today while I was at school and says they look good. They've eaten about half the honey stores, and are bringing in pollen. One queen is laying (saw capped brood), he didn't look too close at the other hive though.
We want to split them both, think this is a good time? Temps are evening out good, barring any storms coming in, trees are sprouting, grass is green. Both hives have about 8 full frames of honey in them. What's the best route? I'd like to get the order in for queens this week while I can and while there isn't a huge rush for them yet. I'm thinking Russians, wonder if they buzz around to the tune of the Hunt for Red October?
The place I talked to has some available next week and so I want to get this going. Am I jumping the gun? If not, what do you guys recommend to do?
