Doing the splits

My bees are going strong so far. I looked in on them today and found brood up in the honey super. I didn't think they were supposed to do that but the last bunch did the same thing. I went out on a limb and took four frames that had brood from the super and started another hive. I heard one guy at the last bee keepers meeting say he had mixed results doing this but I thought I'd give it a try. All I really have to loose is a few bees and some foundation.

Stay tuned for the results.

Starting again

I got more bees yesterday. We'll see how it goes this year. I looked for the queen thinking there wouldn't be as many frame to look over. There were only two frames with brood and I still didn't see her. Oh well.
