On behalf of on of the members of the
Wisconsin Beekeepers, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wibeekeepers/
, I would like to post the following question...

Does any one a have system they use to do an
overall evaluation of a hive? This year I want to start raising queens for requeening my hives and I am looking for a comprehensive system that evaluates all the charecterisics of a hive so that I can raise queens from only the best hives. I would also use this to evaluate the quality of the queens that I purchase from queen breeders. If anyone is already doing this and would like to share the results of any of the queen breeders they have been testing I would appreciate it. Thanks!

On behalf of Tom - John
