bought queens, official queen breeders? never again, thank you!
so, like i've been saying since ever, 2 of my hives were bought from a certified queen breeder. he even exports them to France!!!
guess which of my 5 hives were the worst?
so...one had NO sense of "keeping the hive clean" plus it had terrible chalk brood, i guess cleaning behaviour and chalk brood hand in hand, maybe not anyway, that hive is raising a new queen from another hive.
well today i checked my hives, and guees what i found out? the other one is superceeding, i mean.. :shock: i saw some eggs and capped queen cells, so i know they're not swarming, plus they're building combs.
anyway, what i'd like to know is, can i cut out the superceding queen cells and put in the queen cells from the other hive (desired breed). i mean, i guess it's ok but still have to make sure. the queen cells are approximetly the same age, day or two different.
talk about spreading bad reputation...
