    Default Miksa Honey Farms

    Just picked up my second batch of Russian queen cells from David Miksa in Groveland, FL. Just wanted to say I am very impressed with his queens and operation, and look forward to doing business with him again. In fact we just ordered a third run of Russian queen cells for pickup second week of September. Top notch in my book.

    I'll second that. David and Linda are great people to do business with. I have them ship cells and mated queens up to WI for me.

    The Miksas are always out with the bees, rain or shine, hot or cold. The best way to reach them is email - miksahf@aol.com
    I have been getting queens and nucs from the Miksas for three years. I think they have every line offered in the U.S.

    David has top notch stock to say the least. I tried for two years to get some queens from him. Always booked a long ways out. I am running some buckfast queens now from him. Just trying something different. The queens were put into splits last fall. Built up fast and wintered well above average. In north georgia. I just put med's on last suday and they are drawing out fresh comb at a record pace. I am using his stock in a experiment to compare to my other top yard. Will see.

    I have a Buckfast queen from them and it is by far one of my best hives. Very gentle bees and they are working on their second medium super already this spring.

    Johng. I was kind of reluctant to try the buckfast. They are awesome. In one week they drew out a fresh med per hive. So I said why not add a shallow. So I did. Will see.

    Johng,

    How are your Buckfast doing? All of mine swarmed and left me queenless.I did all the normal tricks, but they were set on swarming. Just wandering if you were have similar results.
