Queens found in Flow Frames - anyone want a virgin queen in Brisbane?


#1

I just removed my flow frames due to two recent swarms,one recaptured and one lost, and the colony needing to build up again. During the brood inspection I found one queen and a couple of queen cells which looked like they had ragged ends. When I lifted the flow frames I found two young queens which I assume are virgin queens. My son and I put them into mason jars and collected attendants for them. I dropped in a little fresh comb with a tiny bit of pollen and nectar from a swarm we caught recently (it has been in the fridge). I assume i need to give them some water but not sure how to put it in so it doesn’t wet them.
Anyone in Brisbane want to take one of these little ladies and start a nuc? I cannot handle one more colony!!!
