I'm going to attempt my first split this afternoon. I currently have a 10-frame with two deeps and a medium. I have an 8-frame deep to split into (with another deep and medium to add later). The last time I looked into the hive, there were about 6 filled frames on each of the two levels of the 10-frame hive. The bee population seemed to be exploding (it still is) so I added a medium to hopefully prevent swarming until I could split. I plan on moving the hives a little bit, too, while I have them apart. So here's my questions: 1. I don't want to disrupt the existing hive too much (although it can't be helped, I suppose, during a split). I know I need eggs and larvae, and honey. If the frames from left to right are 1 through 10, do I take 3, 5, and 7 or do I take 3, 4 and 5? Which one do you think would be the least disruptive? Or am I looking at this wrong? Note: There is drawn comb with drone cells and honey in the second super. I plan on moving some of this to the new hive, too. 2. Since I'm going to move the hives a little bit, there will be some bees that probably don't get back into the hive tonight. The low is going to be around 58 to 60F. Will they survive that outside? Will the split be able to stand that temperature if there is a smaller amount of bees?
