I want to ask if anyone out there is keeping bees in the Southwest and how they cope with The "AHB's". I have read, requeen, requeen, requeen...This sounds easy but, does this actually work? Others have told me to buy the best suit and have layers on and just deal with it. The problem I see is that with AHB traits they may just leave after an inspection. That still wont help me, I mean sure I am not concerned with stings but empty hives don't sound good. The location will be out on rural property, so I do not have to worry about others being stung. I am sure a lot of you have developed a great way to raise bees with AHB's near by. Any tips would save me a great deal of frustration.
