    Re: When do yall check mating nucs?

    Day 16, just like Ray and Mike. You didn't say what size nuc you use, if you are using mini nucs, 4 weeks and you could have swarm problems.

    Re: Grafting without buying anything?

    Just like that, and if you don't like the shape of the tip you can tune it up with 600 wet & dry sandpaper. Just graft the wet spot, the larva comes with it.

    Good question, I would put my money on BQCV.
    45 cells is not too many for a good 5 frame nuc you can get 90 cells out of a 5 frame swarm box.
