2016 DLQ survey

The Devon Apiculture Research Group (DARG) iextendedits research into the root causes of drone laying queens. We had the support of a number of scientific establishments but also needed the support of local beekeepers.
DARG sought live queens which beekeepers intend to discard. They might be drone layers, heading colonies with poor brood pattern, bad temper, tendency to swarm, failure to build up or even spare virgins or elderly, healthy queens being routinely replaced.
