Many seem to prefer a black bee and think it must be AMM or a local bee to their area.

Clicked on the Black Mountain queens advert on this site out of idle curiosity.

Love the pictures of the Carniolian and Caucasion queens. Wonder how many bee keepers have caught a swarm from these and admired the nice large local AMM black bee which most have come from a wild colony perfectly suited to the local area.

Makes you think.

*in the general forum die to the general appeal and not with regard to Queen Breeding / Rearing.

Also the fact that as soon as anyone starts selecting for certain traits- inclusing 'AMM' traits, they stop being 'locally adapted'. The'I keep local bees' thing is a delusional farce.
