- Jun 15, 2013Of 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 However, some hives will consider clipping to be a damage to the queen and will superseded her and kill her.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.
