Re: When to Re-Queen a Package
If you're convinced you're not going to get a well mated queen from an early pack I sure wouldn't introduce her to my hive tool on the assumption she will fail. Why not wait until the queen moves up into the second story, place her back down under a divider board for a couple days until you get cells up top, then replace the divider with a double screen, give them a top entrance and run it as a (probable) two queen unit. At the end of the summer pull the screens and que sera sera.
