I am looking to requeen some hives and was hopping to get some opinioins if it is a good way to go.
I want to introduce new mated, caged queens directly into queen right colonies, without killing the old queen or leaving it queenless for some time. The new queens will be released from the cage in about 1-2days. In your opinion, what is the success rate using this method? Thanks.
In one hive I searched for the queen one day for about one hour, she was nowhere to be found, then found her on the next day.
