Thought I would share a picture of the nucs we created from splits and swarms in the last week.  Things are really expanding this year.

watch out, it can be habit forming, next thing you know you will be like some of us building equipment most of the winter and ordering 1000-5000 frame and foundation (hoping you bought enough) after Christmas to fill you equipment  shocked

Thanks JP, but my wife is the one responsible for the color...LOL. 

TWT, it is very addictive.  We are planning to expand more.  Have had some individuals ask for hives on their property so have new sources for out yards.  You can see we added to the backyard.
