Can I take swarm cells from a hive that made a ton of them and put them in a nucleus colony I made as a queen less split?
Hive (A)was getting crowded so I made a four frame split from it yesterday. I was going to order a mated queen for them but the. I saw that:
Hive (B) swarmed or lost the queen and made at least a dozen queen cells.
Today I decided to be experimental and cut two queen cells from Hive B and tied them to the top bar of an empty frame and added it as a fifth frame to the nuc.
What are the odds of this working?
