I recently had a hive swarm. I was unable to catch it which is disappointing. The good news was there were 8+ capped queen cells in the hive. Fast forward to today, I guess the hatched queen never made it back because it has been a while since the queen cells hatched and now I have multiple eggs per cell. Here is the timeline: June 24th at 12 PM - Swarm June 25th - found 8+ capped queen cells. A more experience bee keeper helped me in this inspection. He found some bur comb and said there was something in it. He opened it up and found what appeared to be a very young queen bee. She quickly ran into the hive and we couldn't find her after that. June 26th - most likely the day they hatched June 27th - Tried splitting but all cells were open July 8th - No larvae or eggs present July 10th - I ordered a new hybrid Russian queen to be shipped on July 17th July 14th - Multiple eggs were found in cells. Usually they were 2-4 eggs per cell. July 16th - I am researching the best way to introduce a new mated queen to the hive. I don't have any apiaries around so I assume the new queen failed to mate. What is the best way to introduce a new queen? I am getting mixed reviews online.
