Brusht Mtn has been kind enough to let me mix n match my medium boxes that they are replacing for me. I'm getting 4 pine deep boxes and a queen castle in place of 6 medium cypress boxes.
If I want to make some queens in the walk away method do I just make the four 2 frame nucs using the dividers, 1 with eggs another with brood, pollen, and honey and walk away?
Should I first leave the box full of bees with no queen for a day or 2 and then introduce eggs/larvae of the right age?
Any tips would be appreciated.
