    I have one of my hives that I requeened about a month ago that have build and capped 3 superscedure cells. I'm assuming I just let nature take it's course? Brood pattern looks good, lots of bees and honey, not really sure why they are trying to replace her. Should I go ahead and try to find her and bank in a nuc?

    I let nature take its course (now). I used to always try and bank queens in situations like that but I am at the point where I have excess so I just let things bee.

    I have 7 nucs I can take a queen from if needed. Kinda hoping for a superscedure where mother/daughter work together until spring but I don't have any say in that matter.
