    I'd rather see your queen purchases per year when you started up vs your queen purchases per year now in relation to hive numbers. I know where my water comes from, and how deep the well is. All I see is smoke on the water, and bees all over the country loaded up with bad genetics. Solution to said problem outside of culling nation wide bee stocks like a case of foul brood sterilization?

    There may be some that benefit from this thread I started last week:

    http://www.beesource.com/forums/show...g-mated-queens

    I was hoping for more input from viewers so concerns and questions could be addressed, but not too many people read the queen rearing forum.

    Cheers to you Honey-4-All, your rant was very well said and I couldn't agree with you more!

    There comes a time in threads like this where the end is reached. Words are said, not for further understanding, but to get a rise out of people. Frustrations become apparent and it heads south. Instead of feeding the craziness, just close the book.
