I am contemplating this tell me what you think. I am picking up a new queen but can not requeen a queenless colony till friday. I am going to pick up the new queen and put her in a swarm box with a frame of bees and brood and a feeder, the queen will still be in the cage and will take that on friday and add the frame with the new queen and let them eat thru the candy plug my thought is that the new queen will already have some bees that know her and will care for her thru the cage and hopefully spread her pheromone more quickly. what do you guys think.
