I’ve got a swarm with two queens. The workers are fighting each other and there’s a pile of dead bees.

We are grateful you are here

I’ve got a swarm with two queens. The workers are fighting each other and there’s a pile of dead bees.

Right now there are two boxes, one that is a swarm trap and the other to knock the swarm into because they’re 10 feet away from two main hives. One hive was split, the other wasn’t so I’m sure that is part of the swarm.

I also brought home a hive I cut out of a tree, and shook the bees off of the wax comb today so I could put them in a hive. I couldn’t find the queen at that time.

Unmarked queen isn’t getting smothered as much as marked queen, but I can’t tell if they’re trying to kill marked queen. Unmarked queen looks very weak.

What can I do??

I’ll be checking new hive for queen right now

Edit: unmarked queen is dead, I can’t find a queen in new hive since half of them all are on the inner hive wall.
