I need to replace a queen in the hive at home. 4th generation hybrid queen is producing 'challenging' workers.
I intend to split the hive and move the queen and her half to the out apiary. How long do I leave the other half queenless before intoducing a new queen. Any advice or tips will be welcome.

Always remember the cardinal rule.

The bees expect what they had. Queen for queen virgin for virgin or cell for cell.
