I thought it might be kinda fun to swap 48 hour queen cells with fellow beesource members. Any ideas thoughts or suggestions?

-warm moist carrying case
-willing participant list
-timing, as the meet and each swap to the other would save a trip.
-resources to make up the matting NUCs timed to also be ready

cool is better then warm, slows the metabolism and they eat less, I will say they didn't do well 24 hours in the fridge :eek:

keep it local... while shipping has been discussed and done the US system has been a mess this year

If I was still in Utah I'd be down. Shipping cells/virgins doesn't sounds too exciting though. My virgins rarely last 48 hours in the incubator, yet alone in the mail. Although I'm sure a box full of nurse bees could lengthen that time considerably.

Is there a bee club in Utah yet? Maybe start one and hand out flyers at the big bee pickups, like Knights Family Honey does.
