I have a two part question.
There has been a lot of talk of positive nature of small cells. So the question that I have, can the cell be too small for the queen to lay eggs. I mean, if a queen was raised from a hive where workers hatched from 5.4 mm cell, can she then be introduced into a hive where workers only work on 4.9 cells. I am curious if her abdomen is potentially too large to fit into smaller cell to lay eggs.
The second question, are there reputable breeders on this board who cell degressed bees with natural "immunity" to varroa mite? If so, can you provide their contact information. Looks like M Bush is out for next season as far as selling bees, according to his website, so looking for somone with similar stock that has gone through regression and is showing positive ability to overwinter.
