Raising Multiple Queens in One Hive!!!
« on: August 08, 2007, 11:08:23 PM »
I have seen certain amazing things about honeybee keeping that have been kept a secret from Western honeybee keeping methods.  Took me years to build trust with the researshers before they would even allow me to withness their experimental hives and another few more years for them to decide to reveal how it was done.  My philosophy of live is knowledge is to be shared and benefits to be enjoyed by all. 
An experience honeybee keeper.  Having learned from the best honeybee researchers in the world. Now sharing some of the secrets in beekeeping methods that is a collection of best practices in the industry.  The secrets to improving the population of the hive, improving the honey yield and tips on filtration methods can be found on his website.

I don't think two-queen hives are a big secret.

let us hear what he has to say-if he's willing to share the secret.
though i did raise 2 queens in one hive this year but it was with the help of bees, they were superceding. every atempt to put a QC into the super failed, the queens just didn't hatch, i guess bees didn't warm them.
