On May 3rd, I removed the 3 year old queen and five frames of bees, comb, honey, pollen and emerging brood and put them in a new location.
I plan on taking a frame with swarm cells from the old hive and placing it into my queenless package hive. I would still be leaving swarm cells behind for the old hive.
I took out a frame with swarm cells as planned, and put into the queenless package hive on May 7. The strange thing is that I saw another laying queen in the hive that I removed the queen from.
