Yesterday I decided to go through a couple of hives I had requeened recently to make sure the queens were doing ok. One hive I went through a few frames and spotted the marked queen I had purchased... just as I was about to put the frame back in I spotted another queen. Now I know 2 queens in one hive is not that uncommon but this is my first experience with it. This was a Carniolan hive that I requeened with a russian queen from redtractor1. The 2nd queen is most definitely half carni as she was a real dark queen. What are the bees intentions with making another queen? I really don't want them to kill my pretty russian queen.... I bought 3 queens from him and that is the only one that I actually got to take so I really hate to lose her.
