    Heat and cool, enough space for what I'm interested in, cheap.
    Any thoughts ?
    Thx

    I try to transfer them during gorging right after capping, while there is still plenty of RJ in the cell.

    If I'm just re-queening large, strong colonies (catching 2-year-old queens and temp caging them to a queen bank), they can go out on Day 2, still floating in RJ. That makes for a whole lot more bees taking care of those queen cells. It only slows down the colonies about 2 weeks. If I cage the queen cells in a small QE cage, it hardly slows them at all, but it makes for some serious mama queen hunting and catching those 11 days late, unless you want to let them fight.
