My husband really loves beekeeping and one of his goals this Spring has been to keep a close eye on them so that he splits our hives before they swarm and has a new hive started. We started last year with 2 Nucs and now we have 3 hives going out back and soon it will be 4!
Here is a video of him splitting the hives. Remember we are sharing our experience and being transparent so I am not editing out anything so there may be some mistakes I am not sure I don’t remember but guess what the bees don’t know. I think at one point in the video my husband was confused about what he had done but he figured it out. The remarkable thing about bees is that they seem to know their bee business even better than we do!
***Follow Up *** – All three hives now have thriving queens this video was shot a couple of weeks ago we could not have asked for better news and we are quite pleased!
Have a great Friday!
