I have a bottle of tincture that I place mean or underachieving queens in.  I spread some around in baithives when setting them out. 

I had some hives die this winter and was wondering is it ok to put those queens in this tincture as well or is it just wasted time? 

Thanks,

James

I probably won't hurt, but I think their pheromones have probably been dried out at this point...

So that would be called a "tincture"? I just call it queen juice.  grin

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
