Hello,
Was wondering if any members have tried the Saskatraz bees that are being sold through Mann lake and what your results where? Or if anyone is ordering/ picking them up this spring? I would be interested in trying them and willing to contribute some gas money.

I received 25 Saskatraz queens from Albert Robertson in Saskatchewan. He's the originator of the stock. Becaise I got them later in July, we used them for requeening. I haven't had them long enough to have an opinion.

The Saskatraz queens from Mann Lake are raised in California by Olivarez. Albert sends breeders to Olivarez.

No, they're all over in NY, and I haven't been there yet.
