x $3.50-They're not mated queens yet

They look nice though. I would be happy to accomplish that. Some seem a little short but I don't raise my own, I buy my cells already made. I wish I had the time and/or patience to do that. Congrats.

Nice work! I remember the first time I tried to graft. I didn't have NEARLY the same success. I think I had a total of 20% were drawn out and capped. Didn't really try it again :)

I'm impressed. The whole queen-growing process is still a mystery to me.

Are you literally just pulling young larva out of cells, sticking them in the Queen cups, and putting the frame back into a regular, working hive?

If that's the case, what prompts them to make queens when they've already got one? Or do you remove her?

Clearly, I don't have a clue, but would love to learn more.

Joseph I normally use photobucket, but for some reason couldn't log on. So I used flicker and this was the only way I could get it to work.

Any flickr users know how to make them show up without linking?
