I will hopefully be making increases this year as long as the bees make it through winter. So far, so good, knock on wood. All of my colonies have traits that I really like. However, I do have a favorite. How do YOU choose which colony to re queen from and what are the traits that you choose for from most favorable to least favorable. Do you only pick one colony, or a handful of your favorites? I'm just looking for some wisdom here since this is going to be an important step in my bee yard and will greatly influence the future of my success or failure. Thanks in advance.
