I finally met the owner of a home in town with a hive in the backyard, only to find that he inherited it six years ago and has never touched it. I'm planning on doing a split in spring to have a second hive; could this potentially be good survivor stock to get a queen from? As in, ask him if I can take a frame w/ eggs and place it in a nuc with some bees from my existing hive and see what the resulting queen is like?
