I requeened 4 Hives with VSH queens that I marked on the 5th. I removed the queens from the four hives yesterday so that they would be queenless for 24 hours. I decided to try to combine the hives and the nucs containing the new queens using the newspaper method as apposed to using queen cages for queen intriduction. I have since noticed a lot of dead bees in front of one of the hives indicating a lot of fighting and I am now afraid that they may have killed the queen as well. I plan to check in no less than 4 days.
