Several queen cells in a nuc

1443 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  karu
I started a nuc to make bees raise their own queen, so they built up several queen cells. Should I let the nature to take its course, so only one queen will remain in a nuc (hopefully) or should I crush all but one queen cells ? What are the prons and cons to either method ?

id leave them all an let nature decide. unless you pull a few queen cells and make a few more nucs
I agree with Kwest. I would not crush any cells. My experience with nucs says that I am not a good judge of which cell will produce a healthy queen. The multiples are good insurance.
