In the Mississippi woods, queens for South Dakota's hives are born. Kelvin Adee explains queening as he holds a line of queen cups that are used to mimic a queen cell to trick nursing bees into raising more queens. These queens are later placed into split hives to produce new colonies of bees that will be delivered to South Dakota in May for the spring honey season.
