Re: Vhs queens
You can check out VSHbreeders.org for more info. Glenn apiaries sells breeder queens, and VP queens out of Maryland. I bought mine local from someone who bought breeder queens from both of these breeders. Just put mine in this weekend. Waiting to see how she does.
I've heard nothing but good things from them. The researchers over the VSH program say not to buy into the idea that most people say that they are too hygenic. They have bred these bees to not be over active in removing brood.
Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do doesn't mean it's useless.
