MG50(AS) is a queen of Alfred & Sabine Schrüfer (DE) mated in 2010, descendant F7 of MG00R. She comes from a line of pure Margret's Hive No 3.


Entgegen der Aussagen von Kollegen, zeigt diese Linie bei uns bis jetzt nur eine mittlere Fruchtbarkeit. Die Völker haben schöne kompakte Brutnester, lassen sich gut bearbeiten, sind schwarmträge und auch vom Honigertrag her, zufriedenstellend.
