When wanting a new queens, have been having great success with OTS, what would you recommend for turning this into queen raising? How do you encourage mating these queens besides providing a cozy lit meal of comb, mead and Al Green

If one see queen cells in a thriving colony should they be destroyed or left as the bees know better than I?
