Ok, so I made a snelgrove split to stop swarming for 2 hives. I have questions though. I know after 9-10 days you put the queen back in the hive in the orginal location where there should be emergency queen cells from the 2 frames of eggs.
The hive that you move that has all the nurse bees and most of the orginal hive, when should they tear down the swarm cells?
When I move the queen back, should I tear down the emergency queen cells or will the bees do that?
When can I merge the hive back together to get production back up and running?
In the pic, the outer ones in the grass are the hives that I moved off their stands.
