Mark - Sorry to go off the subject a bit, but I agree with teen bee about that video on 'mkat.iwf.de', and was wondering if that website does any other good videos on bee topics. I tried going to the homepage, but it was all in german, so I couldn't navigate!

The Bee Works sells two videos on Queen Rearing:
"Queen Rearing"
3 methods of raising queens:
1. No graft
2. Nicot System
3. Grafting (the old fashioned way)

"Nicot System ... Demonstrated"
This is the same informationn presented in "Queen Rearing".
If I were to pick between the two, I would purchase "Queen Rearing".
