Queen Raising
(also known as Queen Rearing)

many beekeepers think that raising queens is just a matter of splitting an existing colony and letting the bees do the rest.

At a very trivial level this may be true, but if we want quiet and productive bees we need to put in a little more effort.

Having said that I do not wish to put off any "would be" queen rearers. It is not difficult and it is not a mysterious "black art". Indeed it is a satifying pursuit that I have followed for over twenty years.
