I entered beekeeping just before winter hit using a nuc. Being on the Central Coast of NSW AU the winter was mild and the bees flourished! They filled the 10 frame brood box in 6 weeks and I decided to add a second brood box with the idea of creating a super colony that would produce more honey more often when Spring came around.
Now we’re entering spring, the girls have filled the second brood box so I’ve added the flow super which they’ve taken interest in. I applied bees wax to the frames and they were up there in only a few days which was really encouraging!
My question is - in order to make the most of the spring bloom, should I split the double brood box and create 2 hives or leave the ‘super’ hive (2 brood boxes, 1 super) as is? Which scenario would be more productive?
Thanks for your comments in advance. This is my first post but I’ve been looking at the forum for over a year now. What a great community
