I have a fairly larg hive that I am pretty sure has developed a laying worker. I have put in a queen cell, put in a virgin queen(before they became a laying worker) but still no sign of a queen. Scattered drone brood is all I can find. Its 2 deeps with 2 supers on it. I'm tired of dealing with this hive. My question. Can I just take a couple frames and add them in to other smaller hives and break it up? Maybe help the smaller hives a bit? What happens if I put the laying worker in a hive that has a real queen? Not sure the best way to deal with it, but I am not going to try and save it. I have 2 nuc's with good laying queens that need to be moved to full deeps and I am going to us some of the drawn deep frames to get them going quicker.
