Hi there,

I'm from down south, nice to meet you Smiley.

Your winter is over already? Wow, I guess you don't really have much winter that far north.

Question: What's the brood situation like in your hives? I take it its expanding and there are drones present?

Let the bees build up and split them when your mated queens arrive!
You lose to much valuable time by letting them try to raise their own queens. One of them or more will become a laying worker hive and that makes re queening very difficult.
Just try to be patient.
