I have a very good hive and want to replace the old queen with one of her daughters. Michael Palmer discussed creating a Re-queening nuc, Bee Culture April 2006 pg. 48. Is there a way to seperate (split?) the hive, have the bees produce and daughter queen and combine the two, removing the mother queen without losing a honey crop? Perhaps some variation of what is described in the article like placing a closed inner cover between the two brood chambers and then removing it after a new dauther queen is mated. I don't really want to make an increase with a split - just intice the bees to make a replacement queen in the fall after the main flow.
