2015 Survey Q & A – Supersedure

Q – I know that one of my colonies superceeded in 2014. Is that relevant?

A – We do ask about queens – supersedure means that the colony did replace their queen….the bees did it not you the beekeeper. It does mean a brood break and that does reduce mite numbers in the hive so It could have made the difference.
