He looses the yield.Two reasons.
2nd, Beginners usually want increase and in any case SHOULD have two colonies so they can have a test frame.
Yuo mean Poly that artifcial swarm's purpose is "how to avoid getting yield".I agree Finman but I do think that beginners are better not losing a swarm the first year or two and learn how to work the colony and get to understand what is normal. Getting honey is better left until later. If they get a few kilos they are happy enough I think. Chasing crops is better done in year two or three.
Heh heh. Nice to know that! I have visited in England 6 times and drived car there about 30 days.This is our difference Finman your climate
