Are you grafting 3 day old larva? That is what it would take to have them capped by Wednesday. You may want to wait a day.
Good luck.

Rob,
Why did you call this "late grafting"? I thought queens could be raised anytime during a flow. Actually,  I thought that the best queens were summer queens. More drones to mate with and a greater chance of survival due to more stable weather. I want to requeen in the fall so if anything I'll be attempting to raise queens in mid summer.
Just curious.
