Hi everyone,
I have been keeping bees for a couple of years now and it has been a steep learning curve. However next year i would like to attempt to breed some colonies and raise queens.
Can anyone recommend any literature to be reading over the winter or any other direction to take.
All advice appreciated

Regards
Mark
