    Hi one and all

    FIRSTLY HERE'S WISHING YA ALL A GREAT CHRISTMAS AND A VERY PROPEROUS NEW YEAR.

    Now I am asking for help , Due to a deteriation in health I have been told to reduce the number of hives that I have , so now I will be managing 4 Lanstroths to try to breed Bees that have a hygienic trait to fight back against Varroa.
    I understand some of you guy's over the pond have done just this, so may I ask for your help and guidence?
    I am looking into it possibly being about a four year project.

    I must thank you all for your support in the past and for the future.

    Thanks.

    Mo (Bcrazy)
