    Default Queen breeders

    I'm already thinking ahead to next year and was wondering if anybody had any recommendations for good sources of Carniolan queens and Russian queens?

    Olivarez Honey Bees in CA has some good Carnies. But If I were you, I'd try to get some local queens.

    When I bought queens, I thought Pat Heitkam's hygienic carniolans were excellent. Very good at cleaning up chalkbrood.
