Newbie queen rearing system?
I would like to try raising my own queens next year. I've got about a dozen hives in my backyard. Can anyone suggest an easy queen rearing system for a newbie? First-timer success rate is probably the most important factor to me. I only want to make about a dozen or so queens, so I don't need something oriented towards large production volume.
Just the name of an appropriate system is all I need. I can research it once I know what I am looking for.
(3rd year, 12 hives, Zone 5b, 5400 ft, 15.8" annual rainfall)
