Re: Is it feasible to control swarming without performing a spring split?
Sometimes I'll find a super strong hive building queen cells, I do not want to make a split, use a snellboard, or take bees, but I know that even if I kill the queen cells and re arrange the hive, that hive is going to build new ones and swarm anyway.
A quick and nasty method that works in these cases, is find the queen and pinch her, plus kill all but 2 of the queen cells.
