As beekeepers, we are equally interested and fascinated by the process of queen-rearing and many of us hold strong views when it comes to queen-raising, queen origins, bee races and colony traits. The reality, however, is that most beekeepers in the country depend heavily on queens produced by somebody else, or indeed on queens imported from over seas.
The purpose of this BBKA News Special Issue is to help those looking to improve their skills and knowledge of queen-rearing, by giving detail on key operations in raising and use of home-grown queens. It includes a few articles published in previous issue of BBKA News, as well as many new articles specifically written for this issue. Although it does not cover honey bee genetics and honey bee breeding techniques, it would, nevertheless, be helpful to those planning to take the BBKA Honey Bee Breeding Certificate.
