Making a couple splits today
« on: March 24, 2013, 08:46:46 PM »

Was doing a couple splits today and inspection and realized those girls are busting at the seams. The top bar hive pictured started with a small swarm last year and they just about have all four ft of that box filled. Plan on using it for building nucs as I found not as easy to harvest honey as a lang. I have an identical one about half filled. They seem to like building in them. Plan on doing two more nucs from that hive sometimes this week.
Psalm 19:9-10
The fear of the Lord is clean,enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea ,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

Pretty good technique there!  Looks quite good!
most often i find my greatest source of stress to be OPS  ( other peoples stupidity )

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.
