I got my stuff to raise queens from Better bee (Nicot system). I like it since I can see the larva after having the queen in the chamber for 4 days or 5. They are the right age and being 52 with tri-focal makes it hard to graft the queens. This makes it easier to do my queen rearing and the queens I get are very well formed. http://www.beesource.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I'm using the Jenter system regularly with good success. Search this forum and you'll find several discussions on it.

I haven't used Jenter, but had great success using the Nicot system last Spring. Good luck and let us know!
