Fast Facts -Splitting stingless bee hives - page 145

Thousands of hives have been generated annually in Australia by splitting (dividing) existing hives.

The standard splitting technique involves separating two sections of a full hive and coupling each half with a new empty hive.

The success rate of splitting hives is very high if your box conforms to a few basic design rules, is built well, and you follow the guidelines.

Most Australian stingless bees species are able to be split using the standard OATH design and technique.

Colonies of Australia stingless bee species re queen themselves if a hive division renders them queen less.
