Easy queen production

by

I purchased my first medium queen castle last spring. I’m very pleased with it and purchased three more for use next year. I have used it to make queens from swarm cells, bank extra purchased queens, start nucs and make small splits for brood frames. All of these worked well.

<br>

<br>The only issue I had is that there is no way to feed syrup. To resolve this, I used a hole saw to cut a hole in each section’s top board so that I can use pint mason jar feeders. So that the bees stay in the sections when refilling the jar, I screened the bee side with 1/8” hard wire cloth. Add nine frames, an empty super, a top cover, brood, bees, and your choice for their queen.

<br>

<br>Watch closely, three medium frames can fill fast.
