I have six hives in my backyard. I plan to start a seventh hive in April and get a new Carneolan queen from Kelley Bees. I plan to take some frames of brood from several of my existing strong hives to put in the new hive. I was wondering if I should move the brood frames into the new hive several days before I pick up the new queen and install her so that the odor of the old queens (from the several hives I pulled the brood from) has dissipated somewhat? If I delay like this, will the bees immediately start to make new queens from eggs in the brood frames I moved over? There will no doubt be a few new eggs in them. If they do start to make new queens, will this make them reject the new Carny queen, and if they do not kill her, what will happen to the new queen cells when they emerge with the Carny in there?
Thanks for any advice. Jim
