QUEEN BEES

Over the past several years, with a focus on the future of beekeeping, I have researched and developed a Queen Breeding programme. The aim of the breeding unit, is to monitor bee traits good health, disease resistance and high productivity. I select these characteristics and maintain the genetic selection and breeding of queens from within these performing hives.

Each of our queens is tested. Those proven to be of high quality are selected and made available to you for purchase.

Instrumentally inseminated queen bees

Carefully selected for their laying, wintering, disease hygiene traits, these queens could widen your apiary genetic pool. This is achieved by careful and deliberate selection of both egg and drone then using instruments to inseminate the queen bee.

Virgin Queens

Virgin queens are a popular alternative to queen cells or mated queens. Because they are caged with escort bees, they are easier to transport than queen cells. We then deliver using courier services. 

Note: these must be dropped into a hive on the same day as they arrive, as every day counts.
