  1. So, one of my hives swarmed back on Sept 24 and I caught and rehoused them. Caught an afterswarm from the same hive a few days later (even though I thought that I had sorted them out!!). So, now I have three hives (all known quantities - strong and disease free), including the parent, all with laying queens. My main objective is to collect honey and I am planning on merging them back together for the flow. However, I like experimenting and two of the hives have not had a laying queen for a while, so was thinking about trying a double queen system... and I do understand that people say the double queen system creates more work. 1. Can I use the newspaper method with an extra QX successfully? 2. Is there a better method? 3. What are the pitfalls of putting a mother and a daughter together, or two sisters...? 4. Would I put a super between the two QR boxes? Or is this unnecessary. 5. Any other pertinent info would be appreciated. Note: I don't need more hives. I'm a hobbiest with 8 hives coming through the winter well and have recently caught 5 swarms and split other hives for nucs and my queen castle. Wife points are running low... Looking forward to your thoughts, cheers, Paul
