I'm fairly new at this, and have a question for you. I have a older friend that hasn't been able to take care of his bees for a couple of years. His bees are strong, and full of hive beetles, but they just keep making large brood nest then swarming.I can take care of the beetles. I bought one of his hives , and want to propagate off of the queen. I have taking the queen Sunday, and put her in a crowded nuc with lots of brood. I made two hives of queenless bees with brood out of the remaining bees. My intention is to make swarm cells in the nuc with this queen then put the cells into other mating nucs. What do you think of this ideal, and when should I start checking for swarm cells.Also I need to be able to age the swarm cells. Any follow up advice would be appreciated.
