Growing weak colonies
Guest post by Dean Haley
I’d like to share a range of strategies for growing weak colonies. Some of these I’ve copied from others and some I’ve tried by myself. None of this is rocket science and I think these are all methods tried by a lot of people over many years.
Lots of people do this and it works a treat, but it’s also kind of risky because it might cause a fighting swarm. You have to be brave to try this method and accept the consequences if it goes bad. It’s very simple just swap the positions of a weak hive and a strong hive. The returning workers from the strong hive now enter the weak hive and boost the workforce.
