Best acceptance rate so far
« on: June 14, 2015, 01:55:16 PM »
So, this is my 4th time and best percentage so far. And from now on, after a day like yesterday, the cages will be used.

13 out of 15 was my best percentage capped. The other 3 times just wasn't as good, maybe some of the first grafts were touched or too dry. But I did get more than 50% on my first one.

I was upset on my third one because I didn't use the cages and a queen emerged earlier than expected and she killed a few. But even that one, I got to it before she killed them all.

Thanks for the pisc.   I have 'Raise Queens' on my bucket list and I've heard about the cages, but now that I see them, I understand.
