So 5 days ago I found my new hive had no queen so I put a frame of eggs in my queenless hive to stop worker laying situation. So upon putting new mated queen in the hive, the egg/brood frame had 5 nice queen cells built out.

SO, choices.

1. Kill/remove queen cells asap.
2. Split! Move queen cell frame into a nuc with other frames/attendants of course. Then let see what happens!
3. Do nothing! Let the queen release in the hive with queen cells, and let them sort it all out. Hopefully I end up with one viable queen.

What think? I like option 2. Thought I'd crowd source the options
