    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    Too many other commitments with the bee season gearing up! Danny, the instruments are coming along nicely. Just a couple of quick comments. I would be cautious with the multiple queen carousel. ...

    Re: Queen Rearing Article

    The starters are simply free flying queenless units. I make them up an graft into them the same day. They are good as starters for a week, maybe two. It all depends on how they hold up. They can...

    Re: Morphological measurements of our Queens

    Perhaps the development of your opinion would benefit from additional reading of the research in this area. Just as it may not be clear to many why bone structure would correlate to milk production...

    Michael, I do not remember seeing this. There was some work done looking at shorter development times and the variation within strains, but I do not recall it being tied to size. I has been a while...

    Ian, there is a larger body of research on the topic of queen quality and the correlates mentioned by Tarpy. As he wrote, the measurements are not an absolute predictor but they have been carried...

    Re: Instrumental Insemination Equipment

    Looking nice. Your glass pipette may be a challenge. The long gradual taper will be an issue to prevent the semen from mixing with the saline. I can't tell the volume if you have enough room to...

    Re: Morphological measurements of our Queens

    I am not sure I would classify the measurements as bigger is better, but rather a relative quality assessment. The size is not used as a directional selection metric, but bigger queens generally have...
