Re: What to do with "extra" queens?
Do you have a bunch of permanent nuc boxes or use those cheap cardboard boxes? I'm thinking of doing the same thing but I think that selling a nice nuc box will eat up any profit pretty quick? Or am I missing something?
You are not selling the nucs, you are selling the queens. When you sell a queen, you slip another cell into the now queenless nuc for them to emerge and mate. If you do not sell all the queens in a timely manner as per the timing of the queen rearing, then you bank them to free up the mating nucs for another round of cells.
Live life with gusto, having no regrets, being thankful every day, and cherish each moment as it happens.
