Split gone wrong
went ahead and did a split on Tuesday. I was attempting to follow some information and checking the frames for the queen. I couldn't find her so I put frames with fresh eggs and capped brood in another box. I checked it quite often and don't see the development of any queen cells. Today I looked back into the old hive and saw two frames full of about 20+ emergency queen cells capped. I must of moved the queen to the split. I am wondering how this will work. If there are going to be 40 or more Virgin queens emerging, does that mean they will swarm? Or will one queen survive? Won't she be injured?
