Installing virgin queen in nuc hive
Installing Queen Cells
Virgin Queen Bees | Wildflower Meadows
Description: The queen is probably about to fail, or she's already failed or died and you just removed their only hope of a queen.. Actually bees need beekeepers like fish need bicycles. A honeybee colony normally only has one queen bee , and a virgin queen has a fierce instinct to seek out and kill any other queens. I have not had any problems controlling swarming in any kind of bees. That way I've made a bunch of small splits and left the hive thinking it's swarmed already.
