Re: Queen breeding
There are several in my area and on beesource that have the hybrid as they are called. I assume that is what you are talking about. What they are is pure Russian queens open mated. Hardemanns apiaries in Ga. has them. What I understand about them is they have their Russian operation in another county from their other genetics. which would make them fairly pure Russians. They just don't belong to the RBA. And don't test for purity. Walter T Kelley sells the packages in my area. Most like them.
So much to learn, so little time!!
