Re: Replace the queen of quick and simple way : is it true?
Releasing a virgin into the normal queen less hive is challenging enough. I got many casualties this way. They will balled her after 3
days for unknown reason. So to improve the chance of a successful introduction is to use a cloak board
to divide the hive temporarily. After the 3 days that the virgin got hatched then you can remove the cloak board for the virgin to roam. Is it better if
there are many nurse bees to go with the frames where the virgin or the qc is being introduced. Yes, it can be done. If not flow on then honey syrup feed them.
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
