Re: first attempt at queenrearing
i went ahead and looked at the cells this evening, which is day 4 after grafting.
i've got 12 capped cells.
half of them are nice size and the plastic cups are full of royal jelly.
the other half are smaller and not so much jelly. i attribute this to not much of a flow here right now and i didn't provide any feed. my builder colony could have been a little stronger as well. i'll be ready next year!
i'll use the six good ones, and put roller cages on the others just to see if they hatch out in the cell builder.
beekeeping since june 2010, +/- 20 hives, tf
