This weekend I had the chance to attend a set of mini work shops put on by WSU (Washington State University). The mini work shops were educational and fun. During the evening, some of us had the chance to watch a older video called "The Monk and the Honey Bee?", which provided an overview of the work done by Bro. Adams, as he worked to produce the Buckfast Hybrid Queen.
Having watched the video, I wonder if any of you had tried using hybrid queens and what your experiences had been. Are hybrid queens worth any reasonable cost increase?
