For those of you raise queens, what do you think is the optimum size for a mini mating nuc? I have enough material to produce about 100, but I don't want to make them too big or small and have to start over. I've made a sketch after trying to do some research but a lot of what I have read varies. If they are too big, resources might become a problem. If they are too small, queen nutrition could suffer and might cause an impulse to swarm. The volume I'm figuring on is 189.75 cubic inches. This is a box with an interior dimension of 5 7/8" wide, 6" tall, and 5 1/2" deep. I also have sketched a built in feeder with a 1/4" division board under a 2" tall piece of qx for a baggie feeder or fondant with the option to remove the barrier to add two extra frames. So my main question is, what size mini mating nuc do you get your best results with?
