'ButtsBees VSHBH Suvivors'

We open breed in saturated areas that we have 'seeded' with swarms to establish the feral colonies genetics. We keep swarming hives of .45cuft. that promote swarming. In 2010/2011 we released the 'Sunkist x Sunkist' at 5 colonies per kilometer for 30 km2. The release was on an isthmus and well isolated. We have since continued this method using VSH/Pol-line genetics with apparent success in noting strong VSH in observed feral colonies.
Worker cells; 4.5mm
Drone cells;
Calm bees. Fast Build. Real SHB fighters, (We tend to notice this behavior with the queens showing strong VSH/Pol-line traits and with SMOKELESS managment).
We are heavy handed on culling when unexcused aggressiveness is observed and those without strong hygienic behavior.

"............That's NOT a spotty brood pattern, it's VSHBH Hygienics. They are cleaning your infested brood!"
