I have 2 hives that are doing great this year- already filled a super each with honey. which is pretty good for Wisconsin this time of the year. I did a walk away split with each one on Friday and am hoping for the best. One of these hives came from a split I did last July and am hoping for the same great result this year. I read all I can about how to do this- then cross my fingers, throw some salt over my shoulder, squeeze my lucky penny and cross my fingers and hope for the best. Wish me luck!
