    Re: Queen success! (So far)

    I inspected my starter/finisher colony that I used for this last batch of cells. It has 13 deep frames of capped brood. I guess the nurse bees have been busy.

    Unbelievable!

    Thanks for all the pics. I forgot about this thread until now.

    Does your box have a hole in it? How do the bees get into the feeder?

    Re: Queen success! (So far)

    The 1st time I tried grafting with a Chinese grafting tool. I knew right away it wasn't gonna work for me. I have very poor vision. This time I used the Nicot grid.

    Re: Queen success! (So far)

    I used a Nicot grid for "grafting", I can't see very well. I set up the starter/finisher as Michael Palmer describes in the National Honey Show video on Youtube.

    Thank you Michael.
  10. Re: Can someone please tell me the type of Queen rearing is shown in these videos?

    Michael,

    In your breeder hive video, you went to your trailer to get a frame. Could you have just moved the empty that was next to the feed frame, and placed that one on the queen side?

    Thanks.

    Re: UPC Bar Code Printing

    So I signed up on the GS1 website, and setup 2 barcodes. I think I did everything correctly.

    How long does it take before it is "active"?

    Thanks to all for a very helpful thread.
