Thanks. I think re-uniting is the way to go as I’m out of kit – and space!.
I did leave one emergency QC so will need to remove that – and check for others, of course. What still confuses me is why they built emergency QC when there was 8/9 sealed ‘proper’ swarm queen cells a week later.
I looked in the wax box today where we put the emergency QC we removed yesterday and saw a head and antennae moving so cut the wax away. Definitely a queen but sooo small.
