Backyard Queen Rearing

Tonight’s meeting was partially rained out, but we still managed to get some quality time in the beeyard.  We talked about backyard queen rearing techniques.  You can download a copy of our handout here:  Backyard Queens

    I have been using your queen rearing calendar for three years now. I absolutely love it thanks for taking the time to put it up on the web.

    My question is did you recently change the day you move the cells? I was moving the cells ten days post grafting. Now it looks like you have lengthened the sensitivity period. Which pushes back the move cells day.

    If so why the change? Where you finding some damage to the queens by moving on day 10? Thanks, John Graf
