    my dear friends
    every 2-3 years i feed my beevives and let them in a single beehive (not double).
    then they start to make swarms.
    what i have now? a lot of swarms with a lot of qweens and a lot of qween shells in every beehive.
    i control the swarms becouse i open the beehives and put inside a lot of easy qween systems. they fill the artificial qween shells with royal jelly with their own becouse they are crazy to go away.
    so, i can get a lot of swarms under control, a lot of royal jelly and a lot of natural qweens. but the most important is that i make colonies with the swarm in their dna.
    so the next year i don't let them swarm by cutting the colonies in 2 or 3 pieces. i feed tem full and i keep them in a small place. that's the secret
    every swarm covers 8-10 frames. after one 40-50 days is ready to swarm again. :yahoo: :yahoo:
