Two queen update

Well, the older queen disappeared after another couple of weeks leaving a drone-laying daughter. She in-turn was dispatched and a queencell put in plus a frame of brood. As there was a lot of drones, I treated with Oxalic Acid too. At the last inspection there was a good-sized virgin inside the hive. She was possibly mated and in the in-between period between mating and laying.
