GregV - I am close to you, and on multiple occasions seen the queens shut down laying for the year the last week of August. Please explain to me how you get enough winter bees if you caged her for the first three weeks?

Those "multiple occasions" where the Queens stopped early, are spread over 40 years. My point is that although it may work well for 19 years, it would be easy to kill all of your hives every 20 years.

They are your bees, so do as you wish. I can not afford to take that risk, and instead use a different non chemical method that does not require another piece of equipment.
