Supercedure cells


So their were a alot of caped queen cells last week in my hive and so i knew something happend to my queen so i go back to check my top box were i found them and their all gone did a queen hatch and destroyed the others


The way I understand your question: yes the most vigorous queen will hatch first, then destroy the others. If two hatch at the same time, they will seek each other out, then engage in a death struggle.


Jeff- I’ve sometimes wonder if, as they wrestle in the death struggle, the two can sting each other at sort of the same time, and then you end up with no queen?
