Our May 28th (third) graft failed. There was a mated queen inside the cell raiser and she destroyed the developing queen cells. There was only one cell that survived, so we put that one into a mating nuc. At this point, all of the mating nucs have virgin queens from the first and second grafts, and one nuc has the surviving capped cell from the third graft. When we get home from the apiary, we conducted our fourth graft.
