He shipped me Queens on Monday and got them yesterday. All Queens came in alive and looking very healthy. Great communication and great service. Thanks Johnny!

An F4 came thru about 30 miles north of us. Hit a town called Louisville and killed several. really devestated the town. Only damage we had was a pecan tree blown onto my grandmothers house.

I have bought queens from Johnny for the last 3 years. I just placed the 20 I bought from him this year. They all looked great. He has been great to deal with. I'll be ordering again next year.

Re: 2014 VSH queens

I bought some Broke-T queens last year to head up some 5 frame nucs. They were placed in 10 frame deeps in February of this year on a mixture of drawn comb and foundation and fed with Mega Bee and syrup and later supered with shallows. Brood rearing machines. Im thinking they are going to require double deeps and then have the heck supered out of them. These pics were taken starting on Mothers Day.

Definitely going to have to modify my managing style with these, so you better be prepared with extra hive bodies. Incredible.

I also tried 10 queens early this summer. They are brood machines. I made up 5 frame nucs which I planned to overwinter. I underestimated these queens. 3 of them swarmed before I got a chance to put transfer them into a 10 frame deep. One just swarmed this morning. The rest have just about filled a deep. Very productive queens.
