Next I tore into my Buckfast hive that I received from Lonnie Langley last year. I removed the Queen last Wednesday, and the hive started raising new Queens with many cells on five frames. I divided the frames and hive into five groups: four I placed into mating nucs, and the fifth I left in the original hive. We'll see how they do with raising their Queens.
I also took a photo tonight of my top-bar swarm trap. We'll see how it goes!
