Re: Constant Superseding
Big Gun, I think I read that open (read uncapped) brood release pheremones that cause the laying workers' ovaries to shrink, lessening their unwanted laying activities. Michael Bush recommends one frame of eggs and brood per week for three weeks.
Sometimes a laying worker hive requires drastic sounding action when the frames of brood over time do not work. The quickest solution is to shake the bees out of the hive boxes and put the equipment back in its original place and let the bees sort it out. Then, you can add a queen without interference from laying workers. HTH
I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up :)
