Re: Shipping queen cells? How long will they survive?
I heard Dave Miksa give a talk on it a few years ago. I don't recall all the details but it requires overnight shipping with late afternoon delivery to their local UPS facility. I believe they are using a "battery" box with live bees to maintain the proper temp. I guess the results are pretty good but as someone who handles even mature queen cells with a lot of care I can't help but believe there still has to be some cell damage from time to time depending on how much care the shipper is using.
