Man, oh man did I have high hopes for my booming hive . . . ugh! I am in the suburbs of Chicago, and yesterday my hive swarmed. I caught the swarm, so it's not all bad. I was just going to let the old hive requeen naturally, but got to thinking "holy &*&$, I haven't seen any drones yet this year". Can someone give me advice? Buy a queen and just introduce, hoping she kills the queen cells? Let the hive be as I'd like to get some local genetics? Tear through the hive looking for queen cells and requeen?? Thanks for the advice.
