Looking for these bees for one of my hives. Yes, I know I must be nuts, considering all of the nasty characteristics of these bees. I realize that they won't be 100% as far as genetics, but I would like to try them. Anyone know of a source for queens?
I don't have an answer for you, but as a kid some 50+ years ago, I remember a man who was to be my inspiration for beekeeping having some hives of these bees. Oh they sure were mean buggers, but they really put on the honey! Thanks for the blast from the past!
