Queen rearing with time control and no grafting.
- - Product number: QRE008
The French version of the Jenter-style system, where the queen is housed in a Cupula surrounded by a queen excluder. This lets the nurse bees in to clean and prepare the Cupula and attend to the queen but keeps the queen in the Cupula to lay only in the cells you want. The queen is given 110 cells to lay in, and since you know when they were laid the time calculation to hatching of the new queens is precise. After 3 days, remove the small little cell cups from the back of the Cupula, and place them in the translucent cell cup holders. This translucent cell cup holder then fits onto the Ceracell aluminium mounting bar (sold separately) which itself is mounted in a wooden frame.
These frames with the cell cups mounted are then put in a queenless hive prepared in advance. The bees in this hive will then proceed to raise queens in the cells.
