So I'm looking to introduce some Italian stock to my apiaries. I haven't bought Italian queens in at least 15 years. I remember using Wilbanks Italians years ago but I prefer not to get queens from package mills.... Looking for stock that is for honey production and not major brooders that will not starve to death here in northern NY. Stock specifically tailored to pollinators is not preferred. Something that is a bit more frugal in wintering than some strains. Any suggestions? Something to offer with mite resistance could be nice too?
