Author Topic: extra queen...what now?  (Read 2628 times)
« on: June 21, 2004, 01:39:04 PM »

By a miscommunication I was sent another queen from another supplier. My only hive was queenless and broodless (as far as uncapped brood) so I got the one, but now this morning another one was sitting at the post office waiting for me. I have a double deep brood box that is now on its way to being filled with honey, a single medium deep super, two queens, and absolutely no brood. (Also no extra hives on hand.) Anyone want to advise me what to do with this situation? Should I try and run two queens, try to split...I am at a loss.

Where do you live? So we know how early winter comes your way.

how about a two queen hive ,if you have plenty of bees and it sounds like you do if they are filling up  with honey put one queen in the bottom put on an queen exclueder and then add your secound brood nest with its queen above the single

I think that is what I'll  do, at least for now.

“And as when Plato did i’ the cradle thrive,
Bees to his lips brought honey from their hive.”
