I have a few question,
1) Can you place queen cells right in the middle of the brood nest of a strong colony if you use a protector to achieve queen replacement?
2) One respected beekeeper told me that this could lead to swarming - Would it lead to swarming or target the supersedure impulse?
3) I know commercial guys that requeen with cells every year in the honey supers but of course this wouldn't be a good replacement strategy if you use excluders. Also, to insure enough bees are in the super would likely mean it is later in the season than might be optimal for requeening. For those of you that use cells to requeen, what are your methods?
