Swarm queen quality???

1638 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  barry42001
If you find a swarm queen prior to her departure, and cage her, would she be any less of a good queen for requeening another hive or even possibly for resale?

I know the colony as a whole dictates much as to swarming, but would such a queen be more prone to just swarming from another hive a bit later?

Thank you.
