Virgins kill other queens by stinging other virgins while they are still in their cells through the walls. Tearing is done by worker bees. Virgin queens can sting humans. Once I picked up a virgin queen and she stung me pretty bad.

I ask the question because when I went to remove cells from my starter finisher today 9 cells were tore open there are 21 not opened but I am hoping she did not kill all of them. I did find the virgin and removed her. The cells are in the incubator so I guess time will tell if she stung all of them
