Re: Funny looking Queen
No you know I don't. I would kill the whole hive because I have zero chance of finding the queen. Mark my posts tend to get turned around. It is not what I want, it is what someone else might want who is capable of dealing with it, IF the queen turn out to have AHB genetics. I am under the impression that hives that are AHB do not survive the winter up here. Isn't it equally possible that light colored queens in FL will have AHB genetics? If the state says you have to kill them all then they are basically saying you can't have feral bees. Something tells me they don't have a prayers chance in heck of policing that.
