I plan on honing some queen rearing skills next year. I have been learning from someone in my area for the last few months. After the initial "lessons", he pretty much convinced me the Nicot is the way to go. We were grafting with minimal success, and often no success. Granted, we could have done things a bit differently, but it is not my apiary therefore not my place to do much about that. Our first run of the picot system worked very well.
So basically, I'm curious as to the general consensus on how well the nicot seems to be working, on a larger scale (the internet!)
Any experiences good and bad, alternative methods, hybrid methods, etc is pretty much what I'm looking for.
