Does not matter.
This season I have two large resource units doing nothing but working on propagation projects for me (including drone generation).
I am, in fact, working on benefiting myself by doing the drones.
But also I have to say this...
Did any of the mite complainers every try to bring in any resistant stock?
If you are in the US and the pending year is 2020 - the choices are many and keep buying the 0% resistant bee is not really reasonable anymore.
I don't know why not at least try it and see for yourself what happens.
What are you waiting for?
Just get your feral/TF bee in the mail and be on your way forward.
I have done the same 3 years ago now.
