Cloake board Q's
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:24:56 pm »
Have been reading about this method of making Q's.
Has anyone used this
method ?  Do you wait till after swarm season in your area ?  And if using the method I've been reading , adding capped & uncapped brood in upper Q'less box to get nurse bees up and then remove those frames after putting in slide board , then put fresh eggs up top for them to make Q cells.  Question when Q cells are being finished up top and both boxes open. What stops bottom Q rite hive not to swarm ?
Hope that's not to confusing.
