    Default Lost a Swarm

    Did an inspection of my hives today. One hive had swarmed, and two others that have swarm cell's built, I split them and wished that I had checked my hives 4 or 5 days sooner.

    Default Re: Lost a Swarm

    In the early Spring we need to do a hive check before the 14 days to see if
    we find some qcs in there. This is part of the hive management that we must
    do to prevent any new swarm. I am thinking to requeen every year with a good
    laying queen to prevent them from swarming. What do you think?
