    Hello fellow Bee folks, I hope everyone is having a great spring.
    I am planning to make several nucs by doing a split in in july (around the 5 or so) One will get the old queen the others a queen cell.
    My question is ,....when should I begin the OTS (on the spot) queen rearing to have ripe queen cells for that date? Thanks and Happy Bee Keeping.
