Considering the necessary number of drones per nucleus, from specialized knowledge, we ended up having 20 times more. (approx. a million mature drones in mating station during mating period). This flood of drones has the role to neutralize the risk of appearance of wild swarms drones in the rarely case they get closer to the mating station area.
We strongly believe that quality and abundant feeding of the strong colonies that participate in this process are essential elements in obtaining good quality queens.
