    Re: An interesting story about wasps

    Yea they are a great predator. I've seen plenty kill my bees en masse. I kill every one i see now to even the numbers. Once a dearth hits up here they stop at nothing to get into my hives.

    Re: What do i call my queens?

    That definitely sounds better i think. At least from a consumer angle a mutt is not as good as a bred animal.

    Re: What do i call my queens?

    This is the track i'm following. So lets say my original Saskatraz is 100 percent. Then the queens i made this year could be 50percent saskatraz. If i use those next year to breed then potentially...
