I confess to ignoring my Bee yard during the time that I was having difficulty doing basic tasks after the death of my husband. I lost three hives, I believed I lost four. (Two to ant invasion, one to moths) All something that an attentive beekeeper would have prevented with easy mechanical means. This video chronicles my attempt to split a hive by digging through the packed brood cells and cutting off a queen cell. Something I was not looking forward to doing and as it turns out, I didn’t have to!
Great footage of the inside of a healthy hive.
