Queen rearing kit (pack of 10)

£8.00

10 sets of parts to raise and hatch queens from grafted larvae or caged queen cell transfer systems.  Containing support blocks, cup holders, cell cups and hair roller cages.

 

The support blocks are fixed to a modified frame with one or more horizontal bars for queen cell raising.  Larvae are grafted into the cell cups or the cups transferred from a caged queen system, the cups are then placed into the cup holders and fitted to the support blocks.  The frame is then placed within a queen less cell raising colony until the queen cells are capped, when they are fitted with hair roller cages and returned to a colony for the virgins to hatch.

 

The hatched virgin queens can be placed within our mini mating nucs with a smaller number of workers until the queens have successfully mated and are laying.  Or the virgins can be directly introduced to nucs or colonies as appropriate.
