I looked out the window today to see our bees going nuts. Stephen’s still outside tending to the hives, but from what I understand, our hive was getting ready to swarm. Thankfully, it looks he caught it in time. If everything goes well, we should have the old hive with the old queen, and a new queen should hatch out in the new box soon.
Stephen was going to put the split into the brown nuc in the picture, but ended up putting them into the bigger white (standard size) hive box. This way there’s more room to feed the small hive so hopefully it will get a better start.
