Just breeding toward productivity will raise productivity in ferals. So I'm already having an effect, that I can't see as being negative.
But in a selectively bred apaiary a lot of bees die too - its just we limit it to queens, taking the nasty out of nature. That's part of the point of selective propagation - to work with the grain of nature, but to exclude the jungle and its painful ways. I can't - yet - see that doing that harms the local feral population.
That means a lot Don, thanks, and the same to you.
