Answering another thread prompted me with a question I have.
I use a cell starter and cell finisher. I'm thinking of with trying a cloake board as a lower resource way for small scale queen rearing.
When using a cloak board for queen rearing a hive gets set up like this.
Cell Starter/Finisher box
Queen right box
If I follow correctly, there are queen excluders on the top and bottom of the queen right box. Paul Kelley also puts QEs above and below the starter/finisher box.
So obviously any drones are trapped. Is it too bad, so sorry? Do the boys just have to hold it and wait for you to tear down the starter/finisher?
