I will apologize for this question up front! sorry...
If my NWC queen breeds with a hot feral, do I stand a greater chance of having a hot brood or gentle/in between?
background....OK, I hope to have around 13 hives at the end of the winter assuming they make it. I want 20 strong hives by the end of next year.
Another goal is to have gentler hives than I have now.
I will order as many NWC queens as I can afford, but not as many as I need..., so I plan to take NWC eggs from a gentle hive and place them in a hot hive made queenless. The new queen will mate with who knows what, probably a hot feral, hence my question about temperment. thanks for the help.
