Newly hived swarm making supercedure cells, OK or not good?
« on: April 28, 2012, 03:21:56 AM »
One of my newly hived (3-4 weeks) swarms has created a number of supercedure cells.
Should I worry or is this an OK thing?   :idunno:

Swarms are often led by an old queen who is often superseded shortly after establishing a new colony...
