Since we have a decent amount of hives around this place, you can just take a frame of babies along with the queen and put them in there. I'm sure you're now wondering "Will the other hive die now without a queen?" Actually no. This is one, of many amazing things bees can do.
When the queen lays her eggs she can decided whether she wants it to be male or female. Females are the workers, cleaners, the baby feeders, they do everything. Males eat food and mate. Sounds like a typical male.
lol Most queens can tell what they need; you always want more females then males, since male do nothing for the hive itself. Some queens don't really know what their supposed to do and lay what ever they want, where ever they want. These queens must be destroyed. GOOD queens will create a rainbow of brood/babies then the workers will make arches of honey, and pollen around them; to help the workers out so they don't have to travel as far to get food to feed them. ***At the bottom is a picture of the rainbow, as you can see the honey is in the upper left and right corners and across the top, than a arch of pollen, then the brood***
If you take the queen from a hive and they have enough brood they can make a queen. Any female bee in the larva stage can be transformed into a queen. To do that, the worker feed a couple of select brood a special food called royal jelly; which to me looks like thick milk. They will then build up the cell
that she's in so she has more room to grow and in 2 weeks you will have a virgin queen. She must then leave the hive and mate with a "useless" male from another hive and return and start laying eggs. In a day a good queen can lay 800-1500 eggs a day.
