"clipped queens result in near 100% supersedure rate for me"
Interesting! I can't say that I've ever had a queen superseded for having clipped wings? I have on occasion had queens superseded but I can't say that it was the clipping that caused it. My yards are loaded with clipped queens.
But to answer your question Brad, it would be kinda tough for a queen to abscond if she can't fly. I would be more concerned why the bees would want to in the first place.
