Breeding mothers 2021
7, 13, 72 (BZF) = .19-ivq.B562(PJ) frkg B15(LE)
As in previous years, we have selected 3 breeding mothers from last year’s 40 remaining drone colonies in spring. These are the mothers for our breeding queens.
Breeding mother 2021, HYG+
imq B144(FBL) = .19-B822(PJ) ins V880(PJ) 1dr
In 2019 inseminated queens from the breeding of Jos Guth/Paul Jungels were purchased. We decided to breed from the mating B822(PJ) ins V880(PJ). It met our expectations in every aspect. The colony has so far handled well the mite and did not need to be treated.
From the B144(FBL) we will follow up in 2021 on a limited scale and offer these queens mated in Friedrichskoog under the designation “HYG+/Varroa untreated queen”.
