Excerpt from The American Bee Journal, Vol. 27: January 1, 1891
If the part of the divided colony, which has no queen, is set on a new stand, then Mrs. Harrison's observations would be correct, regarding their quiet condition, after all of the old or field-bees had left this hive and returned to their old loca tion but if this moved-part had a queen, many of the bees would return to their old location, so that, in this case, the queenless part would show the most activity, for the part on the old stand will always show the most activity, whether having the old queen or not.
Where a colony has an old or failing queen, with very little brood in the hive, and much of that drone brood, then they will sometimes manifest the restlessness spoken of to some extent, should their queen be taken from them; but I claim that such a colony is not a suitable one to divide for increase.
