Re: A second incubator ?
LJ, although I am not having a good run with my grafting, I have done pretty well at harvesting qc's and putitng them in an incubator to emerge. I quickly discovered that left in the incubator, a newly emerged queen would die within 24-36 hours, even being fed water and honey. At room temp, 74°F, all the emerged queens would still be alive 72 hours later, although their vigor was compromised for lack of royal jelly. One would think that there would be an opportunity to get the virgins caged and banked in a hive in between bouts of rain. That would give you four or five more days for the weather to clear and have stronger queens when you release them.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
