Checking our 1st Russian Bee Grafting on Day 6

On Day 6 we had to check the results of our 1st grafting and had to remove the Cloake Board slide and close the rear entrance of the cell builder.  Our new queen cells are looking great. We used an old golf umbrella to protect the bees from an unrelenting rain.  This is the 1st time we have used this type Cloake Board which we recently purchased from Brushy Mountain Bee Farm. It is well built and works just fine.
