    Re: Should I go with Saskatraz packages

    Hmm. Let's see, The Honey Householder buys bees every spring in Ohio, so he's got nothing worthwhile to say? :scratch:

    I sense by this response that you have found yourself a new boogeyman ( eh new virulent strain, eh new enemy ) to combat. Sure hope the special queen genetics isn't going by the wayside now.
