Disease Resistant Queens
« on: May 16, 2007, 03:27:50 PM »
I got a small catalog in the mail from a company that sold queens that were resistant to mites and foulbrood.  I can't find that catalog anywhere and can't remember the name of the company.  Anyone know?  It's been driving me crazy!

I have the Kelley catalog, but that's not it.  This was just a small 4 page color pamplet.  All they sold were queens and package bees.  I wish I still had the flyer, sounded really cool.
