    Re: Mating nuc question

    Mr. Palmer, you stated that it is hard to get a queen to lay in new mini frames. What about placing a new queen in, to get her to lay in newly drawn frames?

    Re: Why or why not Carniolans?

    Those that have Carniolans, what is your overwintering success rate? Locally here you are lucky to get 50-60% of Italians to overwinter.

    Re: Why or why not Carniolans?

    Why do so many say to get Italians first. It seems that Carniolans would be a better choice. Where would be good place to get two queens on the east coast?

    Wax Moths

    I have some stored frames that I found a wax moth larvae in. I killed that one, did not see any more. How can I treat and store them, so I do not get anymore?

    SARE and Grant ideas

    Some ideas to try to get a grant. Would like to grow to 40 hives in the spring. May just be easier to get a small business loan instead. At least in VA they will give you $200 per hive.
