    Hello fellow Beeks, I am having some challenges with some nucs not accepting queen cells from other hives. I am making them one day and placing a cell in the next and feeding. But upon inspection a couple days later I find the cell torn down, chewed from the side of the cell. Any ideas or tricks? :confused:

    Use a cell protector. I always do.
