Today was a busy day. I split a beehive that had overwintered successfully (Italians) and I installed two packages of Carnolians from Stedman's Bee Supply in Silverdale. Each of these photos shows one of the splits as well as a fresh package install. I put a robber screen over the split that was walked away to help force the bees to reorient so they don't return to the old hive location where the new queen sits with half the brood.
