Our Queen bees are raised from Ontario breeding stock selected for gentleness and disease resistance. Like most Ontario bees, ours are descended from the Italian and Carniolan 'races' of European Honeybees, though there is some Buckfast in the mix as well. This combination results in productive and gentle bees that are able to handle our sometimes harsh winters.
We do not clip wings.
We can leave the queen unmarked upon request.
Queen bees can be picked up, or mailed with Canada Post, Monday to Wednesday (to ensure they arrive before the weekend). Additional charges apply for shipping (~$15 for 1-12 queens). Queens are sent via Expresspost and require a signature upon delivery, so please ensure you are at the mailing address to receive the package.
