Thanks to a spontaneous, ambitious purchase, I have 7 mated queens coming tomorrow and do not have mating nucs ready yet. I need to bank them for 2-3 days. I also lack any banking equipment. All I have are the JZBZ cages they are coming in, and a fair amount of #8 hardware cloth. So what are my options?
Can I just hang multiple JZBZ cages in between frames of the same hive?
Could I create 7 push in cages and put them on several frames of the same hive?
