Marked Carniolan and Italian mated queens available in the next few weeks as we combine mating nucs and get ready for winter. Last summer virgins were selected from our best colonies here in Ohio and inseminated with semen from a friend's operation here in Ohio. The inseminated queens were established in their own colonies and overwintered. This spring we chose the best of the best and grafted from them. The Carniolan and Italian lines were from selected colonies that had been around the operation for 3 or 4 years and proven themselves to be good producers, gentle bees, and overwinter perfectly in our mood swinging Ohio winters.
All queens are marked for no additional charge.
