    Tell us about your method for these.
    Did you use the Nucs ?

    I am using a 5frame Nuc for everything. You can see it on the ground behind the cell bar. I have tried the cloake board method, and the queen rite finisher. But, I keep coming back to the nuc as my favorite way. I add new nurse bees before each graft. And I have two nucs that I use. Every other time I will let the nuc keep one of the queen cells so the nuc can get some brood before grafting again. This seems to be working pretty good.

    Nice work.

    It's one of the most satisfying side of beekeeping when you can look at some nice cells you raised, and some nice queens.
    44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
