Several new beekeepers have emailed or called stating they have noticed a decrease of brood activity in their colonies. This is very highly likely because of the cooler weather we've had. Queens slow down in cooler weather. If anyone needs a new queen you can call Monte at (907)490-3126. I am out of queens for the season. Another option is to go to: http://www.koehnen.com/
You can order a queen and have it express mailed up to Alaska. This company comes highly recommended by Steve Victors. I'm looking forward to warmer weather and blue skies next week.
