Queens can be pre-ordered for June and July. Due to uncertainties around weather, we can not guarantee queen orders before June. Please contact us or place an order for "Early Queen Waiting List" to be placed on our waiting list and we will contact you as soon as we have queens available
Our Queen bees are raised from Ontario breeding stock selected for gentleness and disease resistance (hygienic behaviour). Like most Ontario bees, ours are descended primarily from the Italian, Buckfast and Carniolan 'races' of European Honeybees. 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.
Queens are marked blue for 2020.
