Was interested to know if anyone ever tried this north of the border? Back in the early 70's my uncle in Texas was a professional beekeeper. He took me to see an elderly Mexican gentleman near Brownsville that had a couple hives of stingless bees. Apparently he brought them with him from Mexico back in the 60's. As I recalled the hives seem to be thriving. I don't think they'd do well up north but perhaps in southern Texas or Florida. Just curious.
