Now taking orders for August and September mated queens. The queen lines are from our best preforming colonies that have proven themselves for at least a few years to be good producers, gentle bees, and shown to handle our mood swinging winters here in Ohio. We take about 24 virgins each year from those top preforming colonies and have them instrumentally inseminated. The inseminated queens are run in production colonies for about a year to evaluate their performance. The best of the best are used for our breeder colonies to graft off of. The breeders we have been using this year are from the 2017 insemination project and still going strong. We saturate the area with as many overwintered colonies as we can to provide the best drones we can for matings. All queens are marked at no additional cost. Queens are mated and laying well before they are marked, caged and shipped.
