NZBF Can hives try to supersede their queens in early winter?

Recommended Posts

In summer/spring if I took lots of capped brood from a hive, the hive will supersede the queen due to population age imbalance.
If I take all the capped brood today, will the hive start making a supersede queen cell in April? What is the cut-off for doing this going into winter? Is there one as some say the bees not necessarily the queen make the decisions?

I have never heard or experienced a queen being superseded because the sealed brood was taken away.
