    They could always ship double the packages back to the U.S. for half price.

    Tut, tut.

    Don't forget that I snagged the 1 millionth post as well. ;)

    You should read the Darger Thesis which disputes the 70% AHB figure:

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    I bought queens from a chemical free queen breeder who has resistant stock. Which means I can always get the same genetics with a few mouse clicks and a few taps on a keyboard.

    I'm evaluating the BeeWeavers I've purchased. I'm not 'cornered'.

    Re: I think we're barking up the wrong tree,

    That's not clear at all. Certainly not said by me.

    I'm relating Delaplane's conclusion to BeeWeaver, and why it does or doesn't apply.

    That's why he's so sure that none of their genetics spread to the local ferals.
