This is the most popular and successful queen rearing system available in the world. With this kit you will be able to raise your own queens and do it without grafting or ever touching a larvae. You insert the comb box into a frame and 110 brown cell starter cups are fitted into the back of it. Next you confine the queen in the front of the cage and she immediately lays eggs in the 110 available cells. She can be released the next day. On the 4th day each newly hatched larvae is ready for transfer. You remove each cell starter cup and insert it into a cell cup holder. You then slid this unit onto a cell bar holder which is attached to a cell bar. To finish the cells you now put the cell bar into a cell building colony. Our complete kit comes with a comb box, 110 brown cell cups, 20 cell cup holders, 20 cell bar holders. All pieces are resuable except the cell cups.
I used the system this year making 50 queen cells. 1.YOu must place the box with the cover off in the hive for 2 days prior to putting the queen in the box. The workers polish the plastic cells putting their pheremone on the cells so the queen will lay into them.
2. 4 days after placing the queen in the box you should have plenty of larva. The larva can be identified by the milky royal jelly that surrounds them. Eggs have not jelly. Eggs dont work.
3. Dont make my mistake; use your strongest hive as your cell builder.
4. A Cloake board is not essential but it helps.

The best way to make queens
You will need this kit and a Cloake board
You must place the box in the hive for 48 hours prior to placing the queen in the box. After 4 days you should have larva. I usually get 90-100. Place the larva in a cell builder with the Cloake board closed. After a day or 36 hours cells should be started. Open Cloake board and let them finish the cells. No handling larva.

nicot system for people with poor eyesight
Thanks be to God I was able to produce our own queen using the nicot queen rearing system. I am already 59 years old and having poor eyesight, but even with this handicap I was able to produce prolific queens.

I like this system,but I have never used it. Maybe this is the time to begin.
Nicot Queen Rearing
I purchased a system early last year.
I have raised 2 batches of Queens from this system.
The first attempt failed but the last 2 times produced Queens at a 90% success rate.
It is a timing issue.
I recommend this system to anyone wanting to raise there own queens.
