Why is it recommended to change queens periodically?
– young queens are more prolific in their first year, even some until the second year of life
– maintain healthier colony and less prone to diseases, health of the hive is dependent on the queen
– avoid the action of swarming, which is a natural instinct of reproduction of bees
A strong bee colony, thanks to the vigor of a young queen, will always be more active and productive, will not have problems of moisture or cooling of the nest; more defensive to any invasive pests.
