Honeybee Queen

$ 20.00

  1. We raise our own queens which are from Ontario Buckfast and Carniolan crossed with Pennsylvania survivor stock; for more details on the genetics refer to the work we did w/ the USDA SARE grant program (google "Pennsylvania queen bee improvement").  Some of the parents include USDA ARS VSH trait, Purdue leg-chewers, Palmer Carniolan, and Ontario Buckfast.  We have been treatment free since 2003. 

We have Purdue Leg-Chewers Queens.  But, Nucs are SOLD OUT.

Note: on the three options for queens, Mated Queens are available starting in June through October. Virgin Queens are for people who understand how to mate queen, not for new beekeepers unless you have a mentor. Breeder Queens are evaluated to contain the "mite biting" behavior and are daughter of "Purdue Leg Chewers" and tested via field assay.

 

WE DO NOT SHIP NUCLEUS COLONIES OUT OF STATE.

Shipping is based on seasonal availability, we will contact you, or you us to schedule.  Shipping will charged after you tell us how you want them shipped.
