Queen Rearing System
Here's my plan to make a graft free queen rearing system. I plan to fill the small boxes with new comb. Then I'll place those in the holders and make a screen to hold in the queen. I'll let her fill up the boxes with eggs, and then I plan to take those boxes and string them onto a frame (like a cell bar frame almost). Hopefully the bees will build queen cells in most of the boxes and then I can transfer those into nucs.
