    Default Queen cells

    Ok guys I did a split with 4 hives about 10 days ago. Checked on the hives and found all the splits are making there own queens which is what I wanted them to do.

    But some hives have 5+ queen cells capped off what should I do?

    If I had nuc boxes I would consider that route but I don’t so what’s my other options?

    Thanks

    I you don't have the nucs or the bees to make additional splits, leave 'em.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    All I got the bees haha. 4 of my hives had 3brood box so they are loaded. That’s what I did my splits with but I def could splitem again.

    Didn’t know if having to many queens emerging could be bad.
