Re: Palmer queen lines make up and history
Mike, for those of us with say, 20 colonies who want to start raising our own stock, where should we start?
I have 17 colonies with stock from Gardner's, Wilbanks, Heitkams, Strachans, and a couple of local mutts. They were made up as nucs last spring, and I'd like to put 10 or 12 into honey production, then make nucs from the remaining 5 or so left over.
