Re: Constant Superseding
One thought I have had on this is that a queenless colony develops an urge to produce a new queen. the simple introduction of a new queen is not necessarily enough to satisfy that urge.
If you think about it the answer to a queenless colony is often to give them a frame of brood. Giving them a queen that then produces that frame of brood could very well be not much more than doing the same thing. they got their brood. what do you think they are going to do with it now? I suspect it takes at times a it more than just adding a queen to settle the bees back out of that queen production mode.
