Description

Queen Rearing Virgin Queen Bee Introduction Cell, pack of 10
Also known as Virgin Renaissance Cells enabling the rebirth of the queen.
Colonies are disinclined to accept virgin queen bees but these cells mimic a queen cell which they are likely to accept.
Seal the open end with a tissue thin piece of beeswax. This is made by warming and squeezing a piece of beeswax between the fingers. Introduce a virgin queen bee less than 48 hours old into the cell and close the lid. This has a ventilation hole. The queen will be accepted during the time it takes for her and the workers to remove the beeswax cap.
