I tried to ask this question over on the other bulletin board and it quickly melted down to personal opinions about other stuff.

So, is there any credible idea to raising queens during a waning moon phase (full to new moon) or a waxing moon phase (new moon to full)? Somewhere I read (source unavailable) that more swarms emerge during a waxing moon phase, which means the queen cells originated during the dark of the moon (full to new moon). Any thoughts?

The gardening crowd believes one should plant under ground veggies during the waning phase and above ground veggies during the waxing phase. Didn't know if there was any correlation to queen rearing. I mostly raise queens when I can block out a time frame during the nectar flow.
