Re: Anything wrong with this method for raising queens?
I think there may be better ways to avoid emergency queens than swarm cells; trying to get superceder cells.
Methods to try;
Moving the queen out for a few days and then back. That was Ray's idea ?
Stretching the brood nest by adding an empty super between upper and lower bodies.
Putting an inner cover between to reduce contact with queen.
Partially closing a cloak board between upper and lower.
The idea is too make them believe she is failing without the panic of emergency queens and wiothout the risk of swarming.
