Latest in Honey Bees June 30 2014

We just got back from Purdue University with some special Honeybee Queens!  These are a new type of bee that defends itself from the parasitic Varroa mite, they bite the legs off of them! That way the parasites cannot stick onto the fuzzy bees and harm them any more.  Nature adapts to her environment,  Dr. Hunt calls them "Indiana Leg Chewers".  We are cross breeding these with our Pennsylvania survivor bees.
