Replacement of Queens

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.
