Re: Capped Queen Cells One Week After Installing Nuc
I know I felt the same way, and I decided to destroy the cells because I didn't want to deal with swarming yet. There were 6 cells 2 weeks after I got them. Destroyed them and they made 4 more. I destroyed them and they didn't make any more and the queen did great and had 8 mediums full of bees the first year. So they might not scents her yet, or they might want to swarm already, but whatever you choose it will probably work out. Another option is to split them and see if you can get two hives out of it. This is a bad option because they will be very weak, but an option.
