    I wondered if the fellow wasted his 35# (I have no idea of the current exchange rate, but it does sound like quite a lot of money for a queen) and placed it into that drone layer hive?

    Tecumseh, I think you're right. I too paid for that beekeeping lesson: Don't put new queen in a drone layer hive.
