That's my wonders. How can I tell on an 8 medium triple brood box if there are swarm cells or anything if I'm not going through each box/frame.Today. Looked through 2 strong hives for swarm/supercedure cells. 3x10 med brood chambers. 3rd year (Texas) Buckfast queens with fabulous full brood. no QC's. Maybe they superceded while I wasn't looking? Both made 150+ last year.
Lol....and can you tell this only pulling the outer two frames? Serious question from another curious beek.providing them room when they need it. keeping the brood nest from getting honey bound.
