Well the split I made on June 27 when everyone was out of town has resulted in two queens for sure. The jury is still out on the other two. I pulled the queen into a nuc and made up three more with the remaing frames and they had made queen cells with. So the results are 50-50. Which is alright since I will combine if they don't show within the week. Either way the russian hive mutts that are lagging will get a renovation soon. Should I give the two queenless nucs until next weekend and then combine if no queen? Should I put the new Nucs with laying queen in their own hive for a while and feed and observe?
