Re: RUSSELL APIARIES- FACTS, and first hand knowledge... He taught me how to raise be
I only have one bit of solid knowledge, having been blissfully broke when a Russell was trying to sell me a couple of hives. That is that my local mentor paid for about $500 worth of bees he never got, and that's enough for me. Last name Russell: Next
I have a local bee supplier, very small not on the internet, will never bee on the internet, wonderful vsh queens, I've got them in 4 out of my 5 hives. They rock.
I don't need fancy queens. I need queens that lay eggs and bees that can deal with varroa without treatment. And I got those.
Now I remember why I quit visiting Beesource though. Hiya Vance!
Stuck in Texas. Learning Permaculture in drought, flood and strange weather. The bees are still alive.
