Sorry fellas, but as it turns out two of the hives had pretty
much absconded (new packages) due to ants.
So at this point, I'm not even sure I have two queens left,
let alone two extras
I've done what I can for now and hope that the population increase
will make the difference for the two remaining hives.
After they eat through the paper I'm hopeful the queens from the
two feral swarms I captured this spring, will move into the drawn
comb the packages built and start laying eggs in them.
One good thing, was the fact that there was pollen & nectar in most
of the frames from the absconded hives, so the queens should start
laying eggs in them once things settle down.
