What is the difference between the bees absconding and when a hive just had CCD? I know that they are different, but I want to hear from experienced beekeepers their thoughts about it.
I had an experience last year where my hive is abandoned with no queen and had few young bees, larvaes both capped and open and lotsa store of pollen and nectar, normally it would be robbed by my stronger hives, but it was not! Up to now I never heard a CCD case here in our country, and some beekeepers I talked to said my bees just absconded, so I'm really curious bout CCD and if maybe I had experienced it already.

It is highly recommend that split be done with only strong healthy hives that have at least two Brood Chambers with Brood in all stages of development. Frames with capped Brood should be split evenly between the two hives.
