- Hi (prospective member)
I have set up this discussion group for the use of anybody that is
interested in the instrumental insemination of queen honey bees.
The II-List is for the discussion of new ideas and techniques in
instrumental insemination and the use of, and manufacture of, insemination
Whilst members of IINGRIDD may find this a useful resource it is open to
anyone and it is hoped that I may be able to cajole various experts and
noted academics to join us. If you have any expertise in II please join us
and share your knowledge.
A summary of list traffic will be included in the IINGRIDD newsletter for
posting to non internet IINGRIDD members.
I do not expect that there will be much traffic on this list so that it will
be unlikely to overburden your inbox.

by members and viewed by anyone. These facilities are on the II-List

This list is about Instrumental Insemination and is not a bee breeding
group. It is not intended that any particular strain of bee should become a
discussion topic. There are other lists and groups for that purpose. Please
stick to the subject. (The discussion of genetic theories and allele
problems are allowed provided that the discussion is generalised to all
strains and not a specific race.)
Questions on bee management are not appropriate unless they deal with
specific practices of drone and queen rearing for ultimate II purposes. This
is not a list for general beekeeping problems, there are many others for
for suitable general beekeeping discussion groups.
Personal comments should be directed to the person concerned by direct Email

means snip out phrases or sentances to reply to, but please do not include

As a supplement to this discussion forum I will expand and tidy up the
Instrumental Insemination section of my website and I will publish there,
any drawings or material from list members that merits wider exposure. If
you have items that deserve such treatment, please contact me at...
I hope you will at all times be civil to each other and observe suitably
high standards of etiquette and language. (The list is unmoderated and thus
relies on you good judgment.)
