Queen Rearing Season at Full Speed

Queen Rearing

We are into our queen rearing season full speed now that the daily temperature is consistently warm and our mating nucs have larger populations since several brood cycles have passed. Our 4th grafting was completed this past Friday.  We once again we grafted from our Sue  Cobey (Cobey11-40) Carniolan breeder queen which has been doing a phenomenal job.  We have also been grafting from our Russian R13 queen; her daughters from last year are still getting rave reviews from our customers. I am amazed she is still producing great daughters since her green marking makes her a 2009 queen.
