I was recently given two double mating nucs. (each box has two separate hives) My question is how long can you keep a queen in one? If I make a hive queenless and take those queen cells out and put them in the mating nuc, once the queens hatch Can I keep them in it until later on in the summer? Then requeen some of my hives later in summer. That way I can go into winter with young queens, Like Mr. Imirie talks about in the pink pages.
