I have been putting frames of foundation into the broodnest in the BBEBBEBBEB pattern in order to head off swarming. Some of the new frames have a queen cell cup or two on the bottom. Internet searches have yielded conflicting opinions - some say they will build them only in preparation for swarming, others say they will build them anyway, without necessarily intending to swarm. I would be happy either way, as I would love to have some nice new queens and splits. I just don't want to get caught off guard and lose a nice swarm.
Thanks.
