My experience with Beeweaver in TX about 5 years ago leads me to think their bees are too "spicy" for the normal beekeeper. Even the worker bees from the granddaughter were too defensive for me to comfortably work the hive. VPQueens now has a Spartan VSH breeder queen available that is of the Carniolan line.Any thoughts on BeeWeaver? I watched Frederick Dunn's YouTube showing his hygienic bees, and when I asked where they came from he said BeeWeaver. My one hive now has descended from Latshaw queens. Thinking about trying to add another hive of BeeWeavers to see how they mix. Not sure about the temperment of the BeeWeavers.
