    Thanks Cheech, all the best.

    Is there a queen breeding industry in Jamaica or do people just breed for themselves?

    OT, I'm new to beekeeping, just started studying it Nov. last year.
    Haven't heard of a queen farm as such, but talked to some experienced keepers in my area who indicate they would sell queens. So I imagine there are some who do raise some queens but most I hear increase by splits.
    I'm kinda partial to the Mike Palmer way of thinking, so I intend to be doing some queen raising on a small scale for hobby purposes

    Yes well you won't do much better than using Michael Palmers methods, and not just for the queen rearing side.
