Re: When does grafting season end?
I am going to try again this Independence Day. I used the same logic on my last attempt. First time I was 4 for 12. Ok, graft more to get the numbers I want. Grafted 38, and did not squish any that went into the cups. Still only got four. To make it worse, the bees tore them all down by day six. Bummer. I think I may have a virgin queen in there somewhere. If so, I will need another cell starter.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
