Re: Beeweaver queens in the north
I agree with Oldiron. I'd rather treat for mites, then have bees that sting the neighbors, and me. Mean bees get re-queened, and I don't want to read any stories about human, or animal, deaths up here from bees. If you want AHB genes in your bees up north, buy your honey, and get out of the hobby (or business). It's just plainly not responsible behavior. We are already fighting local governments that want to ban beekeeping. All we need is an AHB attack to end our success.
