hive swarmed Saturday when I was gone, neighbor saw it go. Now, there are couple of queen cells and cups -- which I imagine will eventually hatch a virgin queen.
I don't want to wait forever for a new queen to mate and start laying.
Can I move the frames with the queen cups/cells to a nuc and add some honey and additional bees -- and requeen the original hive that swarmed?
What is the best method of requeening the original hive? Do I need to feed the nuc and the original hive (it has lots of honey)?
Thanks for your input.
