Queen Rearing Weather!

Posted by Meghan Milbrath (Creator)

After a long, cold, and now rainy spring, I've been able to start rearing queens!  I've started the project by adding some great local stock, and importing some varroa resistant queens for my drone yards.  I started a small batch of queens this weekend - not enough brood to make a ton of queens, but we're getting started!  I should be in full swing this week.  I just finished teaching a queen rearing class this weekend, and a splits class last week, and am scheduling more for the summer.
