I have recently read a few post where people are raising queens. There is no measurable nectar flow right now in our area. I spoke with one commercial beek, he stated that he will wait until spring to raise quality queens, then I saw a post where a bee club was grafting-and stated as long as there are drones they don't have any problems. I was initiated into bee keeping by an OOoold beek, he always re-inforced not to against the natural cycles of the bees in your area. We will make a few during the fall flow, then take a break until early spring.

the commercial bee keeper is not playing with a hobby; his lively hood depends on his knowledge and has probably forgotten more bee lore than several bee clubs will gain in a lifetime.  thanks to a texas commercial for a pile of information he freely gave me
