I have 2 queens being delivered later in the week. I will NOT be making any hives queen less before they arrive and I can verify their condition, these queens will be requeening hives with subpar queens.
I have a cell starter/finisher that will be getting a grafted cell bar most likely tomorrow maybe the day after and I will only be doing one round of grafts.
So my question is: If the queens arrive Thurs or Friday and if my cell starter/finisher (It's a Joseph Clements starter/finisher) has had the cell bar in it for only 1 or 2 days. Can I put the 2 queens in their to bank for a couple days while I make their new colonies queen less?

This may all be unnecessary but I had the thought and wanted to see what other's opinions were.

I think it should work if the cells are already started, but I've never tried doing it so I may be wrong. I would place the queens to the outside away from the cells being built if I were to try.
