Keen But Not Mean . . .
The queen bee is the most important factor in determining the success of your hive. She determines the temperment of the hive, it’s productivity and the general overall health. We use Italian queen bees. They’re hard working by nature, selected for productivity, gentleness, and hygienic behaviour.
Queens are only available from October through March.
They need to be preordered.
They can be shipped, but it’s less stressful for them if they are picked up from the shop.
