Re: TF: Beginning
I have very limited experience and I'm probably in a very limited geographic area facing a marsh in S.E. VA. I've not yet treated my bees. So far the prelude.
Astrobee provided me with a few QCs last year, of which several have had absolutely stellar vigor. They are derived (as he reports) from Harbo stock from LA. Anyone familiar with this ex-govt, VSH-specific provider? I'm considering getting a fully VSH breeder queen this year as an experiment in queen rearing. (harbobeeco.com)
