With your queen system does it require a pc of wax foundation pressed in with the plugs?
It is not really my system. I use the standard Nicot kit. No foundation is needed for the process. The brown cell cups press into the laying box, and once they have hatched larvae, they are just moved to the cell bar which they just press into. It is a good idea to give the cell builder a frame of foundation though if you don't want comb built on and around your cells.
As Bjorn stated, there are many ways and methods to rear queens. You need to pick a method that fits you best, they all have pros/cons.
I like the Cloake method because it relatively simple, not very labor intensive and gives me consistent results. I have a full time job with a hour commute each way, so I don't have a lot of free time. With the Cloake method, I need less than 1 hour each day.
Here is a comment from Harry Cloake's son Russ.Your comments as to the simplicity and lack of labour involved are very accurate as we used to raise about 2500-3000 cells over a period of about a month from about 16-18 hives and once the system was set up only about 1 hour per day was taken up by cell raising.
I can't speak for the quantity numbers, but I can say the labor time is accurate.
