first i wanna thank you for all the answers, helped a lot! but there are still a few issues.
i read from your site, about this method, and i think i read more than just once that bees will happily accept eggs aswell, that they'll feed the egg, before it hatches. plus i don't understand why wouldn't they take the eggs? i mean...we are talking about bees right? about those small but smarter-than-we-think creatures? so...they'll wait until they hatch, if not, why not?
having more than one queen, let's say i confined 5 of the queen cells and left 1 opened, after the first queen is mated and starts laying, i confine her and let the other out..and so until they're all mated? if not, what would be the minimum, or...a good number of bees to keep her, if the virgin queen is the only one, they will feed her right?can i like, make small boxes, throw in some bees, put a few starter strips and cut some honey comb and put it in, would it work as a mating nuc or are there bigger needs?
could you please explain this #5 and #8 cloth, this is wired mesh right? and the #5 has 4,2mm holes-works as a queen excludor? or what are the measures?is 4mm to small for bees to pass, since i doubt they sell 4,2mm
about the gelly, i was actually thinking about putting a drop of it into my mead, that's why i wanted to know about mixing it with alcohol.
for all your answers i'm grateful and am already thankful!
