Queen Production and Hive Splits

Mr. Dann Purvis was our guest speaker.  Dann has a long history with queen production and researching genics of the honey bee. 

Dann talked about several different way to perform a hive split. Two types of splits being the hive top and the walk away splits.  Also in his discussion he mentioned how important having queens with diverse genics was.  This will greatly enhance your apiary and the continued survival of the honey bee.

Dann had queens for sale at our meeting.  He donated one for a door prize too!  Congratulations to Nancy Howard!
