Re: Queen banking
I'm no expert on this, but last year I made up a small queenless nuc and simple frame to hold cages for queens that I pulled out of hives. I ended up re queening a few hives and the banked queens did surprisingly well for a few weeks. When I no longer needed any of the queens I ended up releasing one of the queens into the nuc (without any caged queens) and it really took off .
