    What happens when we graft larvae?
    Could the widespread use of grafted Queens affect future generations of Hives?

     

    Yes of course. It bends the make up of the future hives, towards what we want, rather than what the bees may have chosen.

     

    Bad thing? Time will tell. But I do not believe the old mantra "bees know best". They are creatures of instinct who respond mostly robotically to any circumstance. They are programned to work in their best interest, not ours. When we select, we consider the modern environment the bees will be in, and what we want those bees to be doing for us.
