I checked 2 of my hives today... the hive that swarmed and the hive it swarmed from... No brood in either, could not find queens... did see queen cells in both.

Where is the fastest place I can order (2) mated queens?

Re: Need mated queens

Could I with (2) of the weeker hives I have combine them? ...I am looking for other options, my budget is a little tight at the moment. (the other hives are all with Russian queens)


...thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Re: Need mated queens

okay with the newspaper, do I need to overlap and if so by how much? I spray them all down with sugar water (both boxes, would this be lightly or not at all?) also with the box I am adding do I leave an opening at the top so they do not roast or as a normal 2 deep have would be setup?

sorry to be such a pain... thank you for all your help!

Re: Need mated queens

How long does it take for the 2 booxes to merge?


Do I overlap the newspaper to prevent an opening?

How aften should I check back on the hives?

Does iot matter the time of day? Will the foraging bees drift to one of the other hives?
