Raising Queens

No New Posts Cell Punch

Cell Punch is such a simple method. You will need to make the tool that you will use in the Cell Punch Method of Queen rearing. Cell punching in various forms has been used for many years probably for the usual reasons why things aren't popular in beekeeping. Many of the YouTube Superstars don't know anything about it, so they will say that it is rubbish and not to utilize it.

No New Posts Grafting

Grafting is the act of taking a tool and moving a comma shape larvae, no an egg, into a cup that can be suspended vertically so the opening is pointing toward the bottom of the hive and allowing the bees to naturally create a queen cell and hopefully a queen be for use by you in your apiary.

No New Posts Nicot / Jenter / Cupkit Queen Rearing System

Nicot / Jenter / Cup kit Queen Rearing System frame consists of a box-like construction with openings for 110 plastic cells, a compartment the queen is placed in, and two lids (front and back). The front lid is removed to expose the queen compartment and the cells where she is expected to place her eggs.

No New Posts Overcrowding

The act of confining the bees into as small of a space as possible so as to force them into a swarm mode thus the bees begin to raise more queens in anticipation of the coming swarm.

No New Posts Queen Castles

How it works is you take one of your standard-sized boxes and make divisions in it so you have three or four small nucs within it. For instance, a ten frame box can be made into four two-frame mating nucs, or three 3 frame nucs. Two medium or deep frames or perhaps three medium frames should be a good size for a mating nuc. This will make these nucs actual functioning hives with more space for the queen to lay. They may even graduate to four or five frame nucs or full-size hives were given a good growing season. Another benefit to the queen castle is that you can take supersedure or swarm cells from hives and simply place the whole frame in the nuc. Add another frame of honey and in three or four weeks, you should have a queen ready to go.

No New Posts Splits

The reasons for making splits are about as numerous as there are ways of making them. A few of the reasons are: - To increase the number of producing hives - To reduce the size of colonies in an attempt to discourage swarming - Control of mites with brood breaks - Create nucs to sell.
