I have a friend I give swarms too quite regularly, he usually throws them together and let the bees decide.
I'm like Kathy, I hate giving up queens, I think they're all pretty special, just like the women on this site! :-* :-* :-*
I actually hate pinching queens, just ask Bud. I would catch them and give them to him, they were plump and beautiful, but with the problems he's having with his hives, it was something we had to do. :'(
