    I'd like to take some grafted cells and drop them in a couple queenless hives that have been limping along with open brood provided from other hives. (They wont make their own queen apparently, but they're calmed and working at present) Will they take them the way a 'regular' Qless mating nuc will, or is there a more of an introduction factor, as they have some pacification from the open brood? (The cells should be ready for transfer in about 7 days)
