We performed a walk-away split moving six frames from our one remaining hive to the hive that was abandoned over the winter.
14th day since walk-away split. Both hives have capped brood. Neither has uncapped brood or eggs. Split target hive has recently opened queen cell.
First inspection of the year at the Lake Becky huppiary. One hive left alive last fall has overwintered and is building up. Split that colony to second hive. Third hive cleaned up and re-sited – awaiting bees.
