Number 2 would not hold still long enough for a good picture. They both have great brood patterns. Got my first grafts off of them last night.
Thanks Ellen and Dan! It was great working with the BIP crew. We found some very hygienic breeders today.
Finally got them about a month later than planned. They came in a nuc so I should be able to graft right away.
Here is a shot of our working prototype for our 4 frame western nucs. We plan to use next day delivery.... to your door step within 24 hours!
Cell builders are running supremely this year.
Shipped some and the bulk of them for nucs. Matings and cells have been excellent this year.
Should have graftable larvae in 5 or 6 days.
These beauties should mate within the week!
Should start hatching today.
Spring has sprung early
Also eating 4 to 5 lbs Nutra bees every 10 to 14 days.
Not bad for Jan 7... lead heavy to
