If they are that hot and you are considering raising queens to sell from this stock, I would pay the money and have some of her off spring tested for AHB. Proliferating AHB intentionally is not a good business idea.Some packages with AHB ended up here in the North last year and i think it set off investigation of the producer/exporter from the state they were located in.

royall, i don't know.  these are the first "pure" carnis i've had since the shb showed up.  most of my experience is with italian or feral mutts that were mostly italian.
ken, they are nothing like ahb, they don't come out to meet me or anything.  i've definitely had much hotter bees than these in the past.  these just got me thinking about what is acceptable to people.
