Re: Queen Development Question
We try to make up splits the day before the cells are ready and leave them closed up till the next day. We have screened bottom for ventilation. Pull the cells and place in nuc with bottle of hot water for warmth during transport. Keep cells pointion down at all times. We transfer 10 day cells, if you grafted on 1st and planted on 10th they were only 9 day cells. This makes them more susceptible to damage. They definatly would have emerged by 15th. You need to check the rest and decide how to proceed. Either find more queen cells or queens. The longer you wait the more likely they will build there own queen cells and then they won't accept what you give them.
