Making Splits and Nucs - May 2019

Making nucs and splits can help you maintain a sustainable apiary. They are great in the spring for relieving swarming pressure, increasing your number of hives and experimenting with bee genetics.

We’ll start in the classroom and then head out to the beeyard and show you how it’s done. We’ll show you how to make a walk away split where they can raise their own queen. We’ll show you how to make a nuc with a mated queen and we’ll show you how to use a Resource Hive.
