same here, and so far doing pretty good without mite treatments. mine are a little dark in color.

how 'bout yours?
Half of my hives required treatment last fall. Determined through a sugar shake and used half dose Apivar. My queen and bee color varies. Queens range from golden all the way to the abdomen tip to almost black. I am monitoring the black for any trait differences.
