    It's a Jenter system, basically. Any advice on a Jenter system will be valid for the Mann Lake version or the Dadant version of it. The concepts of the Jenter system are really simple. The rest are standard queen rearing. The part I had the most trouble with was a "Cell builder". It takes a really crowded queenless bunch of nurse bees to want to build that many cells. The first link here is the best advice I got, but there are many variations.

    Also the best place for this discussion is the queen & bee breeding forum. You will find a lot of discussion there if you search. Including most of the Jenter references I listed above.
