Queen Rearing Calendar

Queen rearing is the process by which beekeepers raise queen bees from young fertilized worker bee larvae.

The schedule of tasks for rearing queen bees is based on the natural development cycle of honey bee queens.

Queen Rearing Calendar notifies you about the timing of each step in advance so you can prepare all equipment, hives and bees to be ready on the appropriate dates.

The dates are calculated based on the day the queen laid eggs or grafting day.
