Repair and replace old hives. This is a great time to repair & paint/repaint honey supers, build new boxes and replace worn frames and/or foundation. It’s also time to assemble new hives.
Prepare for Hive Splits
Prepare for spring splits. Most hives that come out of winter with strong numbers should be split. This will help to prevent swarming. Learn how to make splits and what equipment is necessary.
Build a Swarm Box
Losing half of your bees when they swarm is a real pain in the neck.
You can build a swarm box and set it up in a tree near your hive/s.
Be ready to catch a swarm this spring with this fun project.
