Do they need to be caught without oil traps for your purposes? I know I have a few from checking the oil traps, but not so many that I can find them when searching in the hive for them.

First cutout I do in the spring, I'll leave some pollen comb out for a few days and send you a few hundred larva and eggs. I don't have any this time of year, tho.

We could send you some live samples in a box with holes to let them out for you if you'd like... that way you'll have as many samples as you want for generations to come...

And while we are fulfilling your entire christmas wish, to help keep the SHB from being lonely, perhaps the Japanese would be so kind to donate a few dozen Japanese Giant Hornets Queens --now comes the real resistance test ehhh!!! :thumbsup: ( For delivery/ release in late April. )

I'll send you some, but it'll be springtime before I can get them.

The SHBs that i see are usually too fast to get a hold of. I may have some vials that I could give you Mike. They're glass. Do you want them? I don't need them and they are just taking up room in my office, gathering dust.
