My Queen rearing (and beekeeping in general) has suffered a major setback.

I opened a nuc yesterday to transfer cells into two Queen less hives, only to see the newly emerged Queens take flight as I lifted the crown board

Now I have no young brood, no queen cells, and possibly four queen less hives

Looking on line, almost everywhere is out of stock of queens, but I managed to find somewhere with stock, and have bought two Buckfast  Queens.

I hope things go better with these Queens.Queen Package.jpg
