I split two beehives. It was very easy to do and inexpensive. I just gave the bees sugar water nectar for a few weeks. This spurred on the queen to start laying eggs and got the worker bees to start storing honey for the new bees. Once the room for egg laying and honey storage was filled the hive naturally wants to split or what is know as swarming. In order to swarm the hives makes queen cells to replace the existing queen who will fly away with about half of the colony. However, as a beekeeper I manage the split so the colony doesn’t swarm. As soon as I saw queen cells I removed the frames they were on and gave them to my cousin so he could start his own hives. This helps him and me. He gets new hives and I build up my hives so I will have a hive full of bees when spring comes and the "honey flow" or all the plants are in blossom. Because I have a full hive of bees when everything is in blossom I get more honey. Hur du delar 1 bikupa i 2 bisamhällen och hindrar dem att svärma.
