First Year Splits and Raising queens Are a Success
« on: August 07, 2009, 09:07:32 PM »
I made 2 one frame splits from one of my hives and had great success. I checked the hives today and found there to be queens in both of these hives laying good worker brood.

Can you find the queeen?:

I simply took one frame of open brood and one frame of honey and put them in a queen castle and put a feeder on them.The feeder you can see on my website. And i came back in 1 month and i had two beatiful fat queens. Now i have moved them into 5 frame nucs.
