During a inspections 48 hours ago I found swarm cells and decided to make a split. Now the hive is really hot and cannot go in the back yard. This hive has been mildly hot but now it's off the chart.. I have new queens coming in a few weeks and had planned to replace her.
Do you think I should go back in and remove any queen cells and put her back until the new queens arrive? Would a normal queen introducing method be used or will they except her without..
Or is this temporary after a split?
