So, we started with 2 nucs on April 19th. One is going gangbusters. We added another super and thats begining to fill up. The 2nd not too good. The 2nd at one point had a capped queen cell. We searched and searched and could not find a queen. Fine, we checked the hive again, and the queen cell was open at the bottom, but still couldn't find a queen. We checked the hive again, no queen cell, no queen, no eggs, no larvae, just empty drawn frames. We take a frame with capped brood from the strong hive and place it in the weaker one. We brush off most of the bees to make sure the queen from the strong hive doesn't go into the weaker one. So, me thinks, time to order a queen. I order a Minnesota hygenic queen and she arrives in good shape in her little queen box with a few attendants. We go out to the weak hive and I say we have to check for a queen one more time. And guess what? Theres a queen bigger than life. Maybe the queen cell that we found opened finally paid off? I don't know, I do know that we didn't transfer the queen from the strong hive. My husband thinks we should just remove the top brood box from the strong hive and place the Minnesota hygenic queen in it. I'm thinking just remove a couple of frames of brood, an empty drawn out frame from the weak hive and a couple of empty frames and put the Minnesota queen in it and start a 5 frame nuc. Which is the best option in your opinion? Or do both of these ideas sound bad?
