Jenter Queen rearing system
« on: April 21, 2009, 12:10:04 PM »
I am a hobby beekeeper with around 10 hives.  I just purchased the Jenter system and then read a message that replacement parts may be difficult to get in the future.

Two questions:

1) Are all the parts reusable?

2) Is there still a concern about getting replacement parts?

Did you already recieve it or just place the order.  I read the same message. 

You may want to consider the Nicot system.  I got it from Bee Works and they have a good video as well.

I have it already.  I bought it at Brushy Mtn.  I would have bought the nicot system had i known.   Is the video for that an additional charge?

For anyone who knows, My wife learned to graft larvae into JZ BZ cell cups ,placed in a hive for 10 days to allow bees to do their thing.Afterwhich each cup is placed into a Nucs without a queen until it hatches and then has the brood flight . My question what is this system called ?     The folks that taught her have been in the bee business for generations . This is the way they have always done it.

Seeking knowledge. So many names.

It's usually called the Doolittle method.
