Re: Anything wrong with this method for raising queens?
I have thought about starting queens the same way, and likely I will try it next spring. What can it hurt?
I will include doing an artificial swarm with the original queen--that's the plan anyway. I would need a tutor for grafting or the mda splitter way--eyesight is the problem for me.
I'm still more at hobby than sideliner. Experimenting, having fun with beekeeping experience. I do the honey to pay for my hobby, and having more hives means more fun.
