How to Split a Hive

EXCITING UPDATE – Just came in from the beeyard and the bees are bringing in the first pollen of the season. Its a grey cream color and has to be coming from the local willow trees. My own willow has broken bud but has not yet produced any pollen. The season is nearly upon us!!

I have always enjoyed watching the Fat Bee Man. His videos are very instructive. You may want to watch this 5 minute video on how to split a hive.

Below is a good video on installing a package of bees. Just dont spray as much sugar water on the bees as he does.
