Im just about to give grafting a try. Ive got a cloake board and plan on using it. Im only going to graft 20 to 25 larvae so could I get by with using a smaller hive to get the job done with the acceptance and finishing? Ive got plenty of bees if I need to gather up lots of nurse bees, but i dont need a large number of queens. The hive I have in mind to use has a full deep and half of another deep built out and they have good numbers for a hive that size. Would that hive do the trick on say 20 to 25 queen cells? I can arrange more bees, but this hive is at my house and handy Ive got other hives but they are mostly at other locations and I would rather just leave them to their business and use the one close to the house. I was also planning on maybe splitting that same hive into nucs when the cells are ripe. I think i read somewhere that you can just shake all the bees into the upper box with the cloake board closed off. All the nurse bees will remain in the upper box instead of moving up open brood to draw up the nurse bees. I think Michael Bush wrote that somewhere If I remember right. Im thinking the hive will be big enough to do the job, but really not for sure Opinions would be appreciated.
