After getting the bees back from the almonds, hives are boiling out with bees in double deeps. I planned on making some splits while in the oranges and in the foothills with ripe queen cells. But was concerned with the queen and her mating flight in a yard with all similar in box conf. and color using 4 way pallets. Has anyone had good success requeening with cells on pallets? or am I better off to put them on bottom boards and randomly set hives in the yard? I got a late start to my queen rearing operation and unfortunately don't have enough mated queens at the time ( all were mated in 5 frame nuc boxes randomly painted and placed ) I have had good success with this method, and have never played around with requeening/ making splits with ripe queen cells on 4 way pallets. Any comments or input appreciated.
