    This weekend I drove some cells 20 min to a club teaching apiary and put them over an excluder in QR hive to be finished.
    The hope is to use them Sunday as ripe cells for a class and along with another round of 48s grafted Friday night, to give people some "homework" to take back with them.
    Fully expect a high % of failures, and that's the point
    Fail fast, fail cheap.
    That way you have time and resources left to apply what you have learned

    Msl
    Keep us posted anyway. I have referred this thread to others as an option for things they may have a use in doing.

    Had to keep my mouth shut for a bit till things became public ...
    I noticed on the day I took the capped cell picture the hive had EFB... Long story short the hives were eventuality treated and recovered (after it spread to the entire yard), The cells were destroyed before emergence, because who wants a queen from a EFB positive hive?


    keep your eye on this one, it received its funding.

    MSL:

    I am sincerely sorry to hear about your bout with EFB, and I am glad your yard has turned the corner.

    The SARE project profile you posted looks like a worthwhile study- I will look forward to what conclusions they identify.

    It was a club yard I was teaching queen rearing at and had moved the cells to, there was a huge up tic in EFB in the Denver area this year
    My main yard got hit hard last year and I learned the hard way not to wait with the "new" EFB that doesn't follow the old books (Stress problem that will go away with the flow, etc), the club had to learn this as well, despite my urging that the problem should be jumped on with OTC asap before it spread.

    The golden lining was we were able to bring in members in to see what an active infection looks like, and a few had a "that's what I am seeing in my hives" moment and were able to take action.

    Interesting story, MSL. I imagine this is a lesson that your club won't soon forget, and I suppose your recent bout with it positioned you well to help others take appropriate action.
