I ordered two Carniolan Queens from Ohio, should be here next week. I will be replacing a weak Italian queen and doing another split. Is there anything special about introducing a Carnie queen to Italian workers? I know Russian queens take a bit longer for acceptance, so was just curious about this race.
On the down side it still rains too much in Missouri. Kinda puts a damper on a lot of things a person wants to do. Bummed :(
