I was teaching a day of high school biology on honey bees and I was explaining that when a queen emerges from her cell, she goes around and kills the other queens in their cells before they emerge to eliminate competition.

One of the students asked me why a current, established queen doesn't kill all of the developing queens in supercedure cells for the same reason.

Any thoughts?
