Hi again everyone!
Ok, I grafted approx. 100 queen cells. I was counting on my new bee yard to be ready to pull frames for nucs. Huge mistake on my part! Two weeks during summer was not enough time for my colonies to rebuild after pulling many frames a couple of weeks ago. My bad and I take full responsibility. Chalk it up to lack of experience and unrealistic expectations on my part.
So, I will have roughly 100 sealed queen cells ready to hatch 8/10/18. I will only have 10-20 nucs ready at this time.
Grafted way too many queen cells than I can use. What are my options?
Please help me out. I do not wanna just let em' die.
I already posted on CL...sealed queen cells for $5 and virgin queens for $10. I really doubt if anyone will be interested...
I thought I may pay it forward by simply advertising on CL: Free queen cells!
Have I any other options that I am not seeing?
