Im looking for a queen provider that has VSH and gentle traits that will do well in SE Texas. I don't care as much about honey production.
I have decided my current 3 queens are just a bit too hot. They seem to be especially defensive about every 3rd time I open them up and they have stung family members 50 yds away on occasion. 3-4 will almost always follow me 100yds+ after the inspection. Since I have my hives in my yard, I would prefer more gentle bees.
Bweaver is fairly close but there are reviews from 2011 and before that their bees are a bit defensive. Not sure if they've resolved that.
Are there any recommendations for queen providers for VSH queens? I would replace them in early spring.
