I'm picking up an 8 frame hive on Saturday - it has a new season Carniolan X Italian Queen - she's a very prolific layer! apparently she is laying on the outside frames! the hive is very docile... I'm getting it from a guy in Geelong, Keith, some of you may know him... he's very helpful and certainly knows his stuff!
