Re: Getting queens - what does this mean to genetics?
Yes, that's right. If you make up a split to raise its own queen, the virgin queen will mate w/ what ever drones there are in the Drone Congregation Area. But, the likelihood of the queen mating w/ her brother drones is not too awfully great, because Queens fly farther than Drones from the same colony when out on mating flights, from what I have heard.
