Are any of the commercial beeks out there using bees bred for varroa resistance such as VSH, MH, BWeaver, Purvis. If you are are, do you see any improvements?

I spoke to the owner of Blue Ridge Honey Co. in Georgia about a year ago and he runs Purvis queens. As I recall, he told me that his bees "don't seem to come down with every little thing that other people's bees do." Didn't get around to asking him about mite treatments. Now that Purvis is selling out, I wonder what stock he'll be switching to.

About 80% of our clients are comercial in years past and 75% of those are return biz. Most of them do not spend much time on B.S., however if you pm me I can put you in contact with them.
