I have a heck of time getting queens mated here on the foggy coast of Northern California. Just when mating flight time is due, we get socked in for days on end. This year has been especially rough with fog followed by rain, returning to fog. It gets a bit better as summer moves on but not by much. Anyhow, I ended up with one out of four queens mated from splitting swarm cells. The lucky lady is unfortunately laying a fair number of drones in worker cells (also appears to be laying normal worker brood). In your experience, what is the likelihood of the bees superceding her and having a chance at a productive queen? Or best to pinch and move on? She did come from a desirable queen that I was hoping to keep her offspring. They’re in nuc box to play around with as another resource hive, so the hive’s fate isn’t critical to anything though I hate to see them struggle and dwindle if there’s slim chance of things correcting. I Find keeping a couple of nucs gives me my “bee fix” and keeps me from endlessly fiddling with my couple of production hives and the risks that go along with that.
