hi all

Does a supersedure cell throw out a swarm.

Or is that only a swarm cell.

Cant seem to find an answer. Do they kill the queen themselves or what ?

I've already done an artificial swarm but i don't know now ?

I just want to know.

Thanks.

Bit confused eh?

Look up supercedure. Longest run of two queens I know of was 18 months. Marked queens so no argumente that it happened.

so sup cell, sup queen.

swarm cell.... potentially a swarm.
