Reuniting a queenless cell builder with the queenright colony? Tips?
Ok, need some tips from the pros. My first graft was with a queenright colony but after watching the success of Mike Palmer with queenless colonies I tried one and it worked much better on royal jelly production and the misses were only due to my poor grafting technique.
Tomorrow I pull the cells and put them in the nucs I hope to overwinter.
Any tips on reuniting the queenless and queenright parts of this hive? If I make sure there are no emergency cells in the queenless part I think I am okay just stacking them back together and that is my current plan. Does anyone do newspaper combine for this? Keep me from making a mistake!
