Hi, All!


I thought to share some of the newly mated queens this season using the RJ injected method.   Store bought RJ is
injected into the developing QCs at an early stage.   This will make big and healthy mated queens.  All mated queens went
through their normal method of elite queen selection process.  Only the ones that passed this strict selection criteria will be allow to overwinter.  This will
ensure another generation of top quality queens in the next season.   Do you see any mites?  Why, how?    Getting close!
