„Well, the discussion has started in our club in an evening and revolves around the queen of bank . Them if they stay longer and in a cage with wire mesh bee about losing their patience and start to bite feet of the queens.
Here occurred the club president who is a student at UC apiculture Riverside and explained that a queen held hostage several weeks will have problems with bees when it will be released as Bees to bite the pheromone glands of the feet are gray in color.
Therefore disruption of the natural cycle of a queen for a very long time can become something fatal for her.
Also, when I went to Tom Glenn saw that he preferred to keep the queens in small nuclei after mating and artificial in the bank than on the virgin you do not like more than a week because otherwise it decreases the chance of success.”
Maybe I do not know the latest news about bees and therefore I ask your opinion.
