View Full Version : Requeening

This may seem like a silly question, but I will ask anyway. I just put a new queen in one of my hives. There wasn't room for the queen cage, so I moved an empty frame from the side into the center and then put her in. Was this the right thing to do? What do you normally do, just cut out a spot for it?

I favor taking out 1 frame and suspending the queen cage between 2 frames with the candy plug up. This is done near the center of the hive. but others I have seen just jamb the cage between two frames
