This is my 8 months into beekeeping. In the process I have learn a lot. Thanks to all the good
posts here I have cut my learning curve a lot. This is my first time to attempt at queen rearing using
the OTS notching method. For an inexperienced beginner I found this the easiest one to do. So far so
good. Many more questions I have as I learn and grow.
I saw some stocky as well some slender more narrower body queen.
What is the preference for a queen bee? By what standard do we evaluate them on. Our personal
preference or there is a set standards for them.
Does it matter or is it more of genetics with different type of bees?
You think this is a good enough acceptable queen? She just hatched since yesterday. Hope you can see her not
so clear pics.
