Yup!  There have been some minor reported issues with interracial requeenings, but it works fine most of the time.  It will be 3 weeks after requeening before you start seeing the new bees, and at least 6 wks before the old bees are gone.

I've do it and it's interesting to see the two distinct colouring emerging from the same hive.

I have only had hives for 3 years ,,,,,,  but what I understand is that ,,  the Italians  acept a new queen of another race better then most others....   was told thats why packages are Italian with a queen of what race of what you want ....   
was told ,,,  Russians are hardest to requeen with another race queen ...

Not a problem.

The only race issues in queen introduction is that other races are difficult to introduce Russian queens to.

I introduced Russian queens to NWC bees last year without a problem.
