I read up to page 20- seems nobody has asked this or anything similar.
I have two queens in cages with nurse bees. I'd like to put each into a 10 frame brood box. I have plenty of brood/pollen/honey frames. What would the steps be to accomplish this?
Would 2 frames of honey/pollen and two frames of brood(brood in the middle b/t honey frames), then empty frames on the outside be the trick?
I need to do this in the apiary where the brood is coming from. Will there be any issues if some of the foragers go back home?
Should the queen cage be placed in immediately or should things settle a day or two?
