I wouldn't do it but I've seen people blow money on dumber things.
What do you like about beeweaver?.
Best plan, go with production queens from a quality breeder, such as beeweaver. You will get the good genetics.
Hi James, others,When I did it raised the question that if I decide to try queen rearing in the next year or 2 would it be ok to use a couple of breeders as production until time to put out to pasture so to speak. Realizing the risk of swarming or any of number of things that can happen to the queen. It seems they would introduce good genetics to a beginning apiarey particularly in a emergency or supercede situation. Although I realize not practical for annual queen replacement program.
