Re: Breeding drones
You don't want the drones from your hive breeding with the virgin queen from that hive. The drone frame foundation for the lang hive is used as a mite control. Unless you have a controlled area flooded with your stock your going to need and want the wild ones. The queen will fly out once sometimes twice to breed to a DCA. Where all the drones from the area hang out for a virgin queen to come crusing by. (simular to the outfield bar at the Dr. Pepper Center in Frisco.)
If you really like that queen. You can most likley buy queens from where you got your bees.
Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.
