not exactly what you are asking, but last year I put a swarm into a colony that had a capped queen cell and the swarm absconded. I thought it might work, but in hindsight it seemed like a stupid thing to do- as I had found the queen in the swarm. I guess it is possible there was a virgin already in the colony that I missed.I got a hive that is queenless. This monrring I found a football size bee swarm can I put it in queenless hive? If so how?
