Re: Shook Swarm/Re-Queening
Yes you can. Install the queen(in cage) in your bottom/brood super. Then do your shook swarm. Do not leave the old queen near the hive or you may have issues with your shook swarm going in.
I would suggest not doing the requeen at that time though. The proper timing with the shook swarm includes "at the start of a good flow". You may decrease the productivity of your hive. I would requeen a few weeks before doing the shook swarm or after the old queen has layed brood and that is starting to be capped. The larger the colony the harder it is to have them accept a new queen.
