Is it true that small cell queens when mating with large cell drones will make my process of going small/natural cell more difficult,
This is a reply from some one and their thoughts on the idea from another bee site.
Reply: Tony you realise that trying to go small cell is only half in your control the drones mating with your queen come from different stock, more than likely large stock from someone else¬ís apiary. So unless you get everyone in mating distance (8 miles?) to go the same way as you, it¬ís going to take forever. Each mating will still be mainly with large stock, given some feral bees about which may be smaller. It can work for people in sparsely populated areas like some parts of America, but in England I doubt it
