Re: Something needs to change - looking for suggestions
I understand your position, but in this case, you haven't pumped the water, or stirred in the sugar and flavoring. In other words, you want someone else's koolaid to drink. This is not necessarily a bad thing, you just need to find someone who has koolaid to share. I'm not a queen breeder by choice. I run a business growing and selling tomato plants which means I am super busy at the time most beekeepers are raising queens. This does not mean I can't raise queens, but it does mean I can't do them on someone else's schedule.
all I asked for was a sip of that same koolaid
I will see if I can work in a few extra queens this spring, but no promises and no argument if I can't work them in.
