    Default Requeening Without Attendants

    Was wondering what the percentage change of acceptance is when the attendants are removed from the queen cage vs. leaving the attendants in when placing a new caged queen into a queenless hive?

    From what I've read and seen, it's so negligible that you don't need to worry about it as long as you leave the queen in the cage long enough for complete acceptance.

    This year, with attendants in, I had 5 queens rejected out of 350 nucs made.
