Re: 2 queen colony questions
Lauri I was hoping you would chime in.
Someone posted something about you & Michael Palmer discussing 2 Qn setups. Post the link?
I saw your facebook page w/the 60 capped Qn cells, IMPRESSIVE. I would be interested in at least five if you feel like shipping them to NY. I am on a very low budget, but would splurge for some good Qns.
One thing I have experienced that has not been mentioned here. Many times the bees will prefer one queen over another. Maybe not right away, but eventually,
Take one Qn & some brood for an overwintering nuc?
I am hoping to use a 2 Qn setup to make up losses (45 as of today) I built 4 30 frame boxes.
I was thinking of towering over the center 10 to use cloakboard. What say you?
What do you think about 2 existing Qns in struggling hives in this configuration?
Beecurious. I think I would try that tower hive. I like the use of the drone frames will do that in all 4 of my 30 frame setups.

I have NOT failed. I have only found many many ways that do not work!
