I had weird situation that i never saw.....
Last week i unifyed two hives - one with queen that stoped laying one month ago
and one that i tried to let them raise queen with no success.
After one week i checked and was very supprised to see that
there is a laying queen in the second floor and the old
queen from the original hive that stoped laying.
There was a queen excluder between the floors so they couldn't
hurt each other. I took off the failed queen and move to the bottom the new good one.
1. How come, the bees didn't tried to kill the opponent queens?
2. After i took off the faield queen, can her bees hurt the queen i left?
Thanks alot, Randi
