Re: Getting mated queens accepted
I don’t deal in mated queen intros much anymore but my theory is that queens that have only laid for a few days haven’t developed a strong enough pheromone to suppress e-cells and that can lead to acceptance problems. Then there is the whole issue of whether it’s detrimental to a queen to barely start laying before caging and expecting her to resume normally. To me it’s just so unnatural but that’s another issue entirely.
