Re: bee weaver bees
I tried 3 last year thinking adding their genetics to my "homegrown" muts would be good. One was almost immediately superceded. The other two kept ticking well though one was definately hotter than the rest of my 11 hives. One produced slightly more than average the other slightly less. This year I lost 4 of my 11 double deep hives (not proud). Ironically 2 of them were the remaining B Weaver queens. They had both "chimneyed" though 2 deeps and one super and died leaving substantial stores around them when they came up to the "Mountcamp" emergency feed on top. They didn't seem to be interested in chewing through the paper and starved to death, one them had quite a large population.
Those are my personal observations and I can only comment on them.
