Question: I have a hive (cut-out that is sitting in someone's back yard right now) that has decided to requeen itself. I noticed when going through and discovering this, that there were very few drones (if any at all). I was going to move something there to help out with this but have not as yet. How far will virgin queens fly during their mating flights? I know that there are bees within a 2 mile area, will that suffice, or should I go through with the bother of moving another hive to this yard?
