    Default Moonbeam Queen Genetics.

    I have read that moonbeams are a combination of different races of bees which created a hybrid with some very good qualities.

    Does anyonw know what all races of bees were used in the development of moonbeam and why they were used in the moonbeam development?

    I believe they started out as russians with some additions and corrections.

    He already has, there are several earlier threads where he provides some details of the MoonBeam strain development.

    One earlier MoonBeam post. There are actually, several. He also has information about them on his website.
