    Default Unsuccessful Grafted Queen Cups

    While queen cups are cheap I have to ask. I know that sucessful queen cells cannot be used but I was wondering about the unsuccessful cups. The unsuccessful grafts that were tried using JZBZ queen cups, can those queen cups be regrafted in to.

    All I trying to achieve is graft a few cells for me and my friends.

    Thanks

    Yes, I do it all the time. Some who reuse them, clean them out first, or give them a quick dip into warm, liquefied beeswax, others simply use them as they are.

    I like to fill the cups with warm, purified water, just before I use them (I knock the water out, then prime and graft - or just graft).
