Starting a new queen
« on: May 26, 2010, 01:22:53 AM »
In Hawaii we can't buy live or dead bees from the mainland. Now the only place in Hawaii can't sell queens in Hawaii. I need to make a new queen. Should I take 5 frames from the good hive, put them in a Nuc and hope they will make a new queen. I don't want to kill the bad queen from the old hive yet. I have two hives a good and a bad.
