Mated queen should arrive early March. I intend to split with a double screen with a setup like in this pic.http://bp3.blogger.com/_PFDSe_fBOyc/R4jRq3fGo5I/AAAAAAAAAP4/sq2IGryxVW0/s1600-h/P1120003.JPG
That is not the stand I use
1. If I use a mason jar on the top migratory lid how should I feed the bottom deep ?
I am thinking about making a shim for above the bottom deep with a opening only large enough to mount a external boardman feeder that would only be accessible to the bees from inside.
2. I am using deeps, but I still have a medium super full of honey available to help feed. Would med frames of capped honey help feed top or bottom while I continue to feed syrup to stimulate ?
3. What should I look for to know that they are ready to separate and move the top deep to become a new hive ?
