I have yet to try grafting, and am asking the question to see if my understanding is correct.
Assume I have 4 day old larva in my hive and I move several larva to queen cups.
- Is there a reason I cannot place these queen cups (vertically, upside down) in the hive from which they came and expect the cells to be drawn out? I know I need to remove them before they emerge, knowing the resident queen will attempt to kill the new queens.
- Can I use a larva from another colony?
thanks in advance - Mike
