When a virgin queens flies to get mated will she mate with any drone or do they only mate with their same specises?
As long as she is a honey bee.
I remember reading on this forum about a method to force the working bees in a hive to reorentate themselves when you move the hive a short distance. Could someone please repost that method? I tried to find it but no sucess as of this writeing.
I believe it was placing a log or a bunch of brush (grass) in front of the entrance so the bees will know there is something different and reveiw what they have to look for on their return.
