Re: Queen Rearing with Michael Palmer method
I do not think you are missing anything. The only place his method uses bees is getting the mating nucs stocked. His videos all have them ready to go so he is not showing how many frames you need for that. I would say go ahead a graft a couple of bars. If you are new to grafting and get about 10 to take it will take about 10 frames of mixed brood for your queen castle, after that you will have a source for bees for the next two rounds. I do not know your set up though, maybe you already have all the mating resources to do that in one shot.
