Here I go lol
I do everything last minute
I did a removal and ended up with 3 hot hives
I know want re-queen them.
2 colony's are all ready queen-less
and when the rain gives up I'll get to the 3rd q removed
I can order a Buckfast Carniolan cross queen
and I like the points of each breed
I also know sometime on the second year or bred
they are nasty
Can you tell me if the Buckfast and Carni is a good cross and anything else about them??
Anything you can tell me is a Plus
I would like to order today

Thanks
Last minute

I have a Buckfast hive, local Ontario, a Manitoba, Russian, Italian.  No carniolans.  I really like the Buckfast - gentle, good producers, made it through the winter strong -  and I've heard good things about the Carni's.  I think you'll have a nice hive with that mix.  Hopefully someone has buckfast/Carni bees and can comment on the specific mix. 

Wait - YOU have that mix, or will soon!  Let us know.   grin

Enjoy.

Finny
Where are these many ?/

AS far as what I ordered, I hope they can handle the heat
The heat is what worries me the most.
 I am looking to build this season
I did see www.russellapiaires.com has all the  queens I would like
too try but I am Cheap  grin
These I got were only a dollar more than the local Italian mutt
I hope I get more than the Mutt huh
Before the summer is over I may try some Buckfast but believe
they are mean if superseded
