As you can see in my previous thread:

I have done my first AS. The Nuc bees are starting to fly. and the original hive along with capped QC are still very busy (but a bit grumpy).

Will bad weather stop a new emerged queen from swaming?

Is this a good thing? my thinking is if she emerges and the weather is poor (raining) this mite give the hive extra time to accept her? am i wrong.

what happens when you have a virgin Q in the hive and the weather is A: to bad to swam or B: to bad to mate on the wing.

Thanks in advance :D
