Selection Methods for Honey Bee Breeding
This national award-winning video provides beekeepers with the knowledge they need to implement a successful breeding program. Used to develop the New World Carniolan breeding program more than 40 years ago, and in the development of The WSU project breeder queens, the closed population breeding program designed by Drs. Page and Laidlaw offers beekeepers a pragmatic way of stock selection and improvement. The video covers the basics of honey bee breeding, selection methods, and how to avoid costly mistakes that can lead to inbreeding.
