The earlier thread seems to have disappeared. At any rate, it was good to meet some of you who were there. Here are some links to some of the topics that were discussed:
Paper by Marla Spivak et al on VSH and Minn. Hygenic bees, confirming what John Harbo and Gary Reuter said.
Gary Reuter's home page which has some cool stuff. Everything from how to make comb honey to a pollination contract.
Joe Latshaw web site which has some really good stuff too, including queen rearing basics: http://www.latshawapiaries.com/q-rearing_basics.htm
