Warm weather in Northeast Indiana means it’s the time of year to make more bees. In this blog, we describe how to begin the process of splitting hives to prevent swarming and how we make nucs of bees to sell.
Learn about how we feed the bees, get the queen to lay eggs, and ensure the bees have plenty of food to survive late winter and early spring. Order beekeeping services for your own home where we keep bees for you and even teach you how! Or, buy nucs if you're a beekeeper.
