Your honey bees have expanded many fold this spring. Now is the opportunity to split your colonies in half and get two colonies. In this episode we learn all the tricks associated with reliable and quick spring (and summer) and division of colonies.
Glyn grew up in New Zealand helping my parents breed queens at their apiary. After moving to Alberta, Canada, he worked as the lead bee inspector at Alberta Agriculture before starting my own beekeeping enterprise. He now produces queens for sale across Canada and offer educational webinars to other beekeepers.
