    Default Questions from a bee enthusiast..

    We have a bee enthusiast in Chennai, South India who has been living with bees for over 25 years. He is our only source to assist and set up hives. He has the following questions:

    1. What time the virgin queen goes out for mating? Why the time is selected?

    2. The first queen emerges out from the queen cell, it kills the other undeveloped queens and in doing so does it select any specific method to kill? if yes, why such method?

    3. How the new queen gets so much energy to kill the other queen?

    We would be delighted hearing from experienced members of this forum.
