Swarm Cell Question

787 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  applebwoi
If I add a frame with a capped swarm cell to a queenless hive will they accept the queen when she emerges or kill her? Would it be better to make a nuc with this frame or try to get the queenless hive queen right? I also have several swarms I captured lately and could do a newspaper combine with the queenless colony. What is the best strategy with the best likelihood for success?
