RUSSIAN Queen Wanted in SE New Hampshire
I may need to requeen one of my hives of Carnies. It is a new nuc from this year but I don't think it was a "real" over wintered nuke. One of the two nucs I can't find the queen and it did have Queen Cell near the top of one of the frames. The hive is REALLY, REALLY NASTY TOO!
It is a weak nuc and we are already mid May..... Have to make a move here and am considering requeening.
I am thinking of requeening and thought I would like to try a Russian Queen. My questions are:
1) What are the advantages of a Russian Queen?
2) Any idea where I can get one in SE New Hampshire?
3) What are Russian Queen going for these days???
4) I'm starting to hear Bad Things About The Russians? Are they still desirable or not?
