Making splits.

We are grateful you are here

Making splits.

I’m picking up queens tomorrow and plan to add them to new splits. The question I have is do I wait for the new splits to realize they are queen less before adding the new queen, still in cage of course, say 24 hours. Or do I put her in when I split the hive? I’ve done splits before where the hive makes their own queen but I don’t have great success with getting good queens back. I lost one hive completely last year because they just couldn’t make a queen or get her back from a mating flight.
