2 weeks ago one colony had a queen & fair amount of bees but no capped brood. I didn't see any new queen cells to indicate supercedure. I swapped 3 frames of capped brood from other colony. Today - 2 weeks later, same story. Still queenright & no new brood. So I swapped 2 frames w/dense capped brood right next to frame w/ good queen hoping for eggs.
Do you think there's a good chance the bees will supercede this queen or should I order a new one? Is it possible that this queen is a new one? They had plenty of food & I've never marked prior queens.
