if the queen of a hive dies, but there are a few swarm cells, would the first emerging virgin queen have a cast off swarm, or want to kill the other queen cells...IF the hive has a high population? Thoughts? Opinions?
Thanks!

If the hive has plans to swarm and you kill the queen, they will swarm with the first queen hatched. Is that what you are asking?
