We have been busy with life and our bees the past few weeks and I realized I haven’t posted on my blog in a while (shame on me). We had been preparing and building up our hives for splits and swarm prevention and everything went well. All the splits are doing great and we prevented swarming.
Getting some of our equipment ready.
Grabbing a frame with plenty of brood.
Grabbing a frame full of pollen, which serves as food for the brood.
Going through the hives looking for good frames to use in the splits.
More hives, more frames.
Providing additional nutrition with bee patties.
Finally, new nucs ready to go.
