A question for all:
Who are the most Northerly (Canadian border states or Alaska) long-standing (like 20 years or more) non-migratory queen breeders in the US? How many are out there and still doing it?
Mike Palmer and I were talking about it today and we really couldn’t think of many.
There are sellers of queens, and plenty of people who migrate to warmer climates for winter, come North to make honey and open mate queens for sale, which is cool - but we’re looking for people who are stationary; wintering and selecting from bees who live in North.
Any names come to mind?
