    Default Nicot queen releases

    Do you remove the queen excluder screen in front or just the plug when queen is released

    Take the whole grid away. The larvae need to be fed properly, plus it is easier to fit between frames.

    I've been taking the whole grid away to let the queen out. There aren't any larvae at that stage of course - but hopefully will be in 3 days time.

    But - when you come to check - if you should find that there aren't any larvae and all the eggs are missing (it does happen to some people) - see a thread I started about a workaround for this:https://www.beesource.com/forums/sho...mplete-success But with good fortune this won't apply to you.
    Good luck.
