    Will caging queen for a week with one of those introdution queen cages be enough to break brood cycle?

    I guess it really depends on how long the mites live. They could re-infest.
    Research the life cycle of the mite to see. Normally a split, which is said to break the mites life cycle is a month long process before new eggs will be laid. A week might not be long enough.
