Re: Capturing a colony
From what I have read, I think the queen can lay eggs for multiple varieties. Of course, half the genetics will belong to the queen. But, the other half can be any breed that the queen mated with. During her mating flight the queen will mate with several different drones and save the sperm in a special organ. I haven't read anything about the birth order (whether or not she uses up all of one kind of sperm before using the next drone's sperm).
