Rosehive Swarm Management - Spring Buildup Techniques

As Discussed at Our April Meeting

At our online meeting in April, we discussed pros and cons of various Spring build up and swarm management techniques to keep our hives productive and healthy....and to KEEP our hives!  

One technique discussed was the "Rosehive" technique.  While the slide show below is a testimonial for the 12-frame Rosehive configuration, as you go through the slides, there is a segment related to how to introduce brood space in to the hive to prevent Spring swarms.  Several club members have used this technique with positive results.  It is presented here as a follow up to our discussion.  We hope you find it helpful.
