NOTES ON QUEEN REARING

DARG/DBKA SUPPLEMENT

SUE COBEY’s  CLOAKE SYSTEM

DONALD SIMS ADAPTATION OF THE MILLER SYSTEM

DARG is hoping to produce with DBKA, a revised, second edition of  this booklet during 2015. Meanwhile the sold out, 2011 edition can be downloaded by clicking the heading above.

Sue Cobey’s explanation of Harry Cloake’s queen cell-raising system is one of the best we know.  

The title of Donad Sims’ book echoes the classic 1915 publication by Dr C C Miller, “Fifty Years among the Bees” recently republished.  Sims’ book was published in 1997 by Northern Bee Books. Click the heading for a summary of Sims’ adaptation of Millers system modified in 2014 by Glyn Davies and used successfully at the Newton Abbot Clay Lane apiary.
