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