    I am been looking for books and periodcals on raising queens on a small scale using a no-graft system. Can someone give me some advice and direction?

    Search on "Jenter" and you'll find a lot of discussion. There's the Nicot and the Jenter as the main ones. They are very similar.

    You might also try the Hopkins method. You didn't say how small scale.

    Please elaborate on the Hopkins method.

    I don't get any results when typing in " jenter " in the search function,

    In fact I don't get any results searching for anything. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks.
