In this post-varroa, post-Colony Collapse Syndrome era, beekeepers everywhere are developing localized, mite-
resistant bee stocks. Key to this is their ability to raise queen cells and queens. Author Larry Connor describes a very successful queen rearing method using Starter and Finisher colonies. It covers important topics such as Queen and Colony Evaluation, Biology of Cell Production, Making Queen Cells, Cell Finishing, Drone Production, Nucleus Production/Cells, and Evaluating New Queens.
