Swarm planning for this year and requeening?
Last year I pick up 7 or 8 swarms. Some with queens and some without. The question is should I requeen all of them before fall. See they will be older queens. Or take my chance on them making it through the winter. I did no requeening last year lost all of the old swarm queens and a couple of other old hives out of 9 came through with 4. One lost was my fault. They all starved with honey in the hive or sugar storage in comb.
