Live Queen Cells - Ontario Stock
Humble Bee Inc.
Contact us after placing your order to arrange a pickup time, cells are generally available once or twice per week from late May-August.
Orders must be scheduled in advance. You will need to bring a cooler to transport your cells in. Cells must be installed in a colony within hours of picking them up, so be sure to have your splits made in advance.
Looking for a more economical way to expand your apiary? Our queen cells 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, plus Buckfast genetics as well. This combination results in productive and gentle bees that are able to handle our sometimes harsh winters.
