I have a couple of my mini poly mating nucs that the cells didn't hatch out on last Saturday, this is the first round for the season (Australia) so there is no eggs/brood in these mini nucs. I have another batch of cells due to be capped this Saturday, can I put a cell into these minis on day five (very carefully) rather than transferring to my incubator and waiting till day 10?
Is a cell protector recommended?
Cheers
John

The short answer is yes. Once they are capped you can easily move them on what should be day five as your queen to be is still in the larval stage.
