Requeening a Colony

There are a number of reasons why

There are a number of reasons why a beekeeper is likely to requeen a colony including the following:-

I think that beekeepers need to be careful when requeening colonies. I have seen some very good queens culled for poor reasons. These can be simple things like not understanding that colonies with non-prolific queens can be more productive than those that fill the hive with bees, or the brood pattern looks bad when there are other reasons for it.
