yay... my first bee post...

question... I used to raise bees in the 70s, before killer bees came around..

I just ordered 2 hives and am starting again and i think i lay awake at night too much thinking of weird things..

actual question... I was wondering, do queens mate with any drone that is out there, or is it with one from her own hive?

if you have several hives, to they tend to all release their queens and drones at the same time for the mating flight, or at random..

AND, would a normal queen mate with a killer drone? what would this do to your hive?

remember... i'm new... sorta..
