Improve Queen Rearing Success - Bee Boost (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 Bee-Boost lure in each mating nuclei when it is established or when the queen cell is inserted.
Ship Queenless Packages - Bee Boost calms bees shipped in queenless packages. Place Bee Boost lure as if it were a queen cage.
Temporary Queen Replacement - A hive will perform normally for several days with Bee Boost as a temporary queen. Remove the queen or queen cells and place a Bee Boost lure in each brood box. When a queen is available, the Bee Boost is removed and a new queen introduced.
