About how many queen cells does a hive build when they get ready to supersede or swarm ? About how late would a hive swarm in mid to south TX ?
Acts2:37: Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39: For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40: And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation

Supercedure cells that i've seen, there's 2 or 3, maybe 4 sometimes.
Swarm cells, all over the place on many frames.
Sitting in the shade, drinking lemon aid.
Enjoying the breeze while counting the bees.
