Finsky thanx alot for your help, here is what i decided to do.The meaning of splitting is to stop swarming fever. Do not leave hive splitted.
Today i went in again and checked on them to see what is going on, i've seen about 6 queen cells, that i broke away because i don't want another swarm. I'am going to go with your suggestion and divide them. ..
To broke queen cells was not good work
. You should leave at least one queen cell that bees feel their life normal and they get a queen. When you have got a new queen, then you can kill the cells.
But never mind. When you get a new queen soon and you will have capped queen cells in the hive, bees take a new queen will pleasure. ...[/quote]
i will need everyone's help on how to do that. ...
It will be a mesh
Can you guys tell me how would i manage to divide my bees step by step procedure?...
You just lift an old hive to new place and let bees fly to new hive. They fly which fly. Part of bees stay in hive. They keep brood warm. Brood will emerge soon and old hive gets more bees.
You must put queen and one brood frame into new hive and other are foundations. When bees build foundations, their swarming fever will be gone.
But after that hives are not able to collect honey. When bees have drawn upp foundations, kill the old queen and put parts together.
New queen will not swarm, if you keep free space in the hive. Your hive is totally too small to split.
After joining hives you have
- 2 brood chambers
- You can put the lowest brood champer extra, because children of 2 queen's will soon emerge.
- I guess that after 30 days you will have 3 brood champers and 4 supers. It is a good honey unit. That way it goes.
But do not feed them syrup. Let them gather honey.
