Cut It or Leave It?
One of my hives was trying to swarm, so today I cut out all the swarm cells. There were about a dozen swarm cells and one supersedure cell. My question is whether or not to cut this one out. I didn't locate the queen, but I did see larva and I'm fairly certain there are eggs. This happened to my other hive, and I cut them out, and now they are queenless. Are they trying to replace the queen, or will they swarm if this one hatches? The queen that is currently there has her wing clipped and cannot fly away. Thanks.
