Sounds too good to be true,maybe! The one question I would have is how does one make or buy the"caspian solution"? Even if you could only make 5 hives form one in a season this would be extraordinary.

I got five hives from one package in a year once and I thought that was amazing.  Most of them reared their own queens too.  I was using PermaComb so they didn't have to draw it.  I put each one in a five frame nuc until it was fill of bees and comb, and then an eight frame box until that was full and then a ten frame box until that was full and then added ten frame boxes after that.  I installed the package in a five frame nuc too.

it might would have to be a longer warm season to do 10 latebee, I dont know but you being in NY, your season doesn't last to many months doesn't, it is interesting though, just thought i would post it.

Encreasing hives is not a problem but loosing honey yield is.  If you take all the time  20% bees away so you get surplus honey at all.

Second problem is when you have 10 fold hives and you chould get new customers for honey 10 fold on saturated markets. If you sell nucs it is not easy to get new customers as unknown markets.

I know that multiply 3 fold hives during one summer is possible without loosing any honey. I have not tried more.
