making new queen bees

Searching for four day old larvae.
We then inserted eighty of them in seperate queen cups and fed them with some queen jelly. These queen cups were introdused in a very strong but orphaned bee hive to be fed queen jelly by the bees. Twentyfour hours later they will be seperated and inserted into four different beehives to continue the feeding.
