Order of march question (split/move/queen cell)
I am having a friend beekeeper take care of my splits while I am away for three weeks. I need to split before I go and have queen cells that will be ready. My questions is do I:
2. put the cells
3. transport (1 hour drive)
2. Place cell allow to hatch
3. transport before mating flights
3. Place cells at new location upon arrival .
I don't want to make too many trips and i want my new queens to mate in this new place.
