Results of Saturday’s Honeybee Grafting

Mary is viewing the grafting frame with 3 rails. The top two rails hold the New World Carniolan queen cells and the bottom rail holds the Russian queen cells. This is a wonderful view with new queens covered with many  young worker bees, two days after the grafting. By tomorrow these cells will be capped. By next week these queen cells will be moved to their new mating Nucs.
