Preparing cocoons for winter storage

Posted by blueberrytalk on October 18, 2016


Separate good cocoons from infestations of pollen mites and store 500 at a time in plastic trays. The double layer of plastic is to protect from rodents. Storage for the present is in a closed carport that is a couple of degrees warmer that outside temperatures.

We are getting 5.7 cocoons average from a 6 inch nest.
