Re: Checking for emergence from grafted cells?
PUNT!! Sorry I couldn't help myself. I'm wondering if you mean after planting in a queenless hive or in a nuc. There seems to be more than one train of thought going on here. If you planted it in a queenless hive, I would hope that you had an extra queen in a nuc for just such an emergency. That is what I plan to do when I get around to grafting. Or if I ever get genetics that I want to graft from. Next spring I intend to set up some nucs just for the banking of queens. If I don't need them then I can expand my Apiary or sell or give them away.
