TheHoneyPump:
LoL.
Need lots of royal offspring:  Good choices are:
Theresa or Victoria
(ref: Maria Theresa, Habsburg.  Victoria, grandmother of europe)
other notables to consider:
Charlotte, Elizabeth
NOT Anne or Ranavalona or Mary

Call her what you will. Make it fun.

Wink wink wink

Michael Bush:
I did the Jenter, but the concepts are the same.  I liked that it isolated the skill of grafting from the skills of running a starter or finisher.  Also you could know the age of the larvae so it helps you learn what the right age looks like.  I don't do it anymore because the Jenter means many trips to the beeyard.  I would have to find the queen, confine the queen, go back the next day and release the queen, go back in three more days and transfer larvae.  Those same tasks with grafting simply involve finding the right age larvae and grafting, which is one trip vs three trips and I don't have to find the queen at all which saves even more time.  So grafting is a lot less trips to the beeyard and simpler in many ways.

Thanks Mr Bush. Let me ask, do you have more information on this in your bushfarms.com website?
Thanks again,
Phillip

Michael Bush:
I don't think that particular info is on my website.  I talk breifly about the Jenter on my queen rearing page.  Here are some places we've talked about here on beemaster:
