I noticed on today's inspection that there are still a lot of drones around and quite a bit of capped drone brood in multiple hives. I think that's because we had a late start to summer. The weatherman said this autumn will be warmer than normal so for better or worse I put together another rich cell starter today. I wasn't going to have time to graft tomorrow, so the cell starter was only about three hours old when I inserted the grafts. I hope that's OK. I grafted 14 cups. Well see how it goes. I tried the JZ-BZ grafting tool for the first time. I think it worked better for me than the Chinese grafting tools. We'll see on Tuesday when I get to take my first look. Historically I suck at grafting with about 10% acceptance rate. I'll be happy if I can improve that. Extra practice if nothing else.
