    Default Adding queen cell to queen right hive

    If I add a queen cell to a queen right hive, what will happen? Will the hive destroy the cell? Will the hive supersede the existing queen and swarm? Thanks for the info.

    If you want to use a queen cell to re queen a colony (supercedure), add a ripe cell up in the supers during a flow.

    Would this alter the chances of swarming during the spring flow?
