      Of course that doesn't mean the hive won't swarm.   They will still swarm with the first virgin, plus you stand a good chance of loosing the clipped queen as she may still try to leave and just get lost.

      If she’s clipped, she cannot fly a it ruins her flight symmetry. The good part of that is she won’t swarm. However, some hives will consider clipping to be a damage to the queen and will superseded her and kill her. Some people won’t have clipped queens, others won’t have anything other than clipped queens.

      What are the advantages and disadvantages of having the wings clipped on your new queen that would be installed during a requeening?
