II may not be everyone's "cup of tea", but there is a new discussion group that has II as it's main object (and subject).
If you have any expertise in II please join us and share your knowledge.
I do not expect that there will be much traffic on this list so that it will be unlikely to overburden your inbox.
There are Database, Files and Photo Album facilities which can be accessed by members and viewed by anyone. These facilities are on the II-List webpage, which is...

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 that.
Personal comments should be directed to the person concerned by direct Email as they clog up the automatic archive facility and disrupt the flow of the thread.
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 your good judgment.)
