I will second the suggestion for New River. Jason does an excellent job on his queens. I have also purchased excellent quality queens from VP Queens and Dr Joe Latshaw.

Any thoughts on BeeWeaver? I watched Frederick Dunn's YouTube showing his hygienic bees, and when I asked where they came from he said BeeWeaver. My one hive now has descended from Latshaw queens. Thinking about trying to add another hive of BeeWeavers to see how they mix. Not sure about the temperment of the BeeWeavers.

My experience with Beeweaver in TX about 5 years ago leads me to think their bees are too "spicy" for the normal beekeeper. Even the worker bees from the granddaughter were too defensive for me to comfortably work the hive. VPQueens now has a Spartan VSH breeder queen available that is of the Carniolan line.

If you can make a split from your best existing carniolan queen, then look up Mike Jablonski in Forrest Ohio. He offers instrumental insemination services using select drones from his personal stock for $100 plus round trip overnight shipping. Also offers the same service for other breeds. Cannot beat that price for a pure mated queen. Allows you to keep breeding from your own line while also bringing in multiple drone genetics.
