Today we split a hive using langstroth frames (in a double farrar box) from hive #8. The frames have a nice lot of larvae and food. We added some food cakes from one of the other hives (#6?).
The hive has a young, new queen that we bought from Janne.
We decided to take the whole hive up to the farmhouse to start a new site up there, It is a sheltered spot and close to the forest area which we cleared last winter so next year (or the year after) there will be an abundance of raspberry. In fact lower down the slope, next to the barley fields is a "suo" (peat bog) area where there are cloudberries.
