Requeening while splitting.

We are grateful you are here

Requeening while splitting.

Hi all, ordered a bee weaver queen bc I want to try their mite resistant genetics. I plan to use it for a split from an overwintered hive. I want to reduce the risk of queen rejection – do I just have to make sure there are no queen cups on the frames I use? Do I use frames without brood/eggs so they don’t try to make their own? Empty frames and shake bees into a Nuc box and slow introduce the queen? Thanks for the help!
