Did he mention keeping young queens in the colonies and or annual re-queening from good stock?
Ernie

He does talk about re-queening every year but states that most of the time every two years is what the recommendation is.

It is a good article. I also like the article on year round nucs as a management tool by Larry Connor...that's something I'm looking into more and more. The entire mag was good this month! Still flipping through it every chance I get.

It's a great article in a great magazine! :applause:

I only wish they had run it in March or April, before swarms started here in the South. C'est la vie.

You will find lots of good info in these places.

Welcome to the beek life.
