How to Introduce a New Queen to Existing Hive
Step 1: Examine the hive and know the status of the queen. If there are queen cells or a virgin queen in the hive, the introduced queen maybe killed.
Step 2: Place your new queen in between brood frames, this is normally in the center of your hive.
Step 3: If your hive has been queenless for a few weeks, you may need to consider adding a frame of young brood prior to introducing the queen.
Step 4: At the time of introduction check queen cells, and remove any that may remain.
Step 5: Allow a couple of days before checking hive. If you introduced a queen cell it will take 21 days for her to start laying eggs.
