The Queen rearing kit incorporates 8 Bosi cells on a bar that can be easily fixed to a frame. Ideal for the hobbyist to try queen raising in its simplest form, a Chinese grafting tool is also included.
Place the attached bar into the hive and leave it for 1 day allowing the bees to aclimatise to it, ensuring the hive is queenless from this point, graft larve (no more than 24hours old) into the cells and leave for upto 8 days until sealed. At this point either a cell protector needs to be place over each Queen Cell or they need to be moved into individual mating nucs.
