A hive making there own Queen?
I had a monsterous hive coming out of winter. so I made 2 spliss with all of the Swarm cells that they made. Ended up getting a virgin queen running around on both NUC frames. I was wondering how much luck I'll have with them mating and returning to the NUC hive? I'm here in central valley california. Yes there are other bees and hives around for drone meeting they're nearby but not in the same yard. Thoughts???
