caged before the move!
Hi my name is chris and im new to the forum. My question is the other day I had trapped and caged my queen due to an eminent swarm. I chose to do this because I have read once they gear up for swarming they rarely give up. Is that true? Even if extra room was givin, for instance I split them. I also kept her caged for a day then put her in another split where she never originally came from. What are the consequences of putting her into another split? Could I have split the 10 frame in half and expect her to stay after I took all the cells out and replaced the hive with a combination of drawn out and bare platicell?
