I have little experience but how about just giving it only a few grafted cells in this situation? I am considering (actually began implementing) introducing cells whenever a hive is queenless for whatever*reason adjusting the cells to the*nurses number.* One could always use*a few extra queens, just postpone*the queen introduction for a few days until cells are capped and you got yourself from some to many potential queens with very little effort.* In the*past I also quickly introduced*as a*test a few fresh grafts whenever*I did not feel like looking for a still-not-mated virgin or not-yet-laying matted queen in a larger nuc or hive.* (Would appreciate any opinion/suggestions on this little_john.)
