This system eliminates the process of grafting by having the queen lay directly in the cell cup. This system allows you to raise up to 110 queens at one time. All components are reusable except the brown cell cups. Reusing cell cups greatly diminishes the acceptance rate.

Pseudo Queen with QMP (Queen Mandibular Pheromone)
Improve Queen Rearing Success - Pseudo Queen (simulates an egg laying queen) used in queen mating nuclei in early spring can maintain significantly higher bee numbers than in non-treated nucs. Insert one Pseudo Queen in each mating nuclei when it is established or when the queen cell is inserted.
Ship Queenless Packages - Pseudo Queen calms bees shipped in queenless packages. Place Pseudo Queen lure in the hive as if it were a queen cage.
Temporary Queen Replacement - A hive will perform normally for several days with a Pseudo Queen as a temporary queen. Remove the queen or queen cells and place a Pseudo Queen lure in each brood box. When a queen is available, the Pseudo Queen is removed and a new queen introduced.
