I second. Unless queens come from isolated mating yards or from instrumentally inseminated breeders they are mutts. I have lots of mutts! We had Carniolan virgins inseminated with Italian drones 6 weeks ago. I already have daughters out of them we are calling them "Cartalians" LOL If the daughters and the breeders overwinter well and pass my standards I will be selling some Cartalians next year.
