I checked the cell raisers; there are no takes in either of them. A mating queen got into one, and in the other a virgin queen was there and had destroyed the other developing cups. After finishing up with the cell raisers, I did another double graft – 60 cups. I put those in the cell raisers and said a quick little prayer to the gods of queen rearing to bless our operation this time.
