Re: Introducting a Queen Cell - Do you have to wait?
I prefer to wait a day for a couple of reasons. I want to encourage some cell development in that first 24 hours as insurance in case the virgin dosent hatch or is killed. Secondly it isn't unusual for a nuc to lose a lot of bees to nearby queenright hives. this gives you the opportunity to add bees or switch hives as needed to insure their bee numbers are adequate.
