IÂ’ve bought a 5 frame nuc which is a half sister to the queen that I all ready have (Heinz 57) and at the moment it is in my garden and it has been there for 4 to 5 week, I will movie them some time soon to my bee yard,
This year when the bees raised a queen in a weak hive that I had she ended up failing and I think it could off been a lack of or partly due to diversity in my area, the nearest bees/bee keeper to me are 8 miles away and has a big problem with v mites.
I bought a buckfast x cecropia queen to re queen my weak hive and that went wrong to,
So I was thinking that if I took some broad from both hives next year and made up 2 nuc and bought 2 queens to head these nucs what stain off bee would be good to help on any queen rearing I might try to do next year,
