Re: Queen Question
grew to about 8 boxes deep each. I had to remove supers so I didn't have to stand on cinder blocks to feed them.
I want to find my remaining queen and mark her before the hive gets any larger...about 8 full medium frames of bees currently. I want to re-queen with better local stock when queens are available.
Sounds like you have an excellent queen already. Why would you think any other queen can grow a colony to more than eight boxes?
Eight boxes means two or three brood boxes. The rest are supers, containing honey. Why would you be feeding an eight box hive?
