We make sure that the queens have a good laying pattern before caging them with their attendants.
Queen cells are extremely fragile and must be introduced in their host colonies as quickly as possible.
Our summer nucs have 3 frames of brood (all ages), and one frame of food, along with adhering bees, shaked bees, and a laying queen.
Our stock has a very diverse genetic background, being a mix of carniolan, caucasian, italian, 'Buckfast', and Russian 'Primorsky' bees. We believe that a good genetic diversity is an element of success for a honey bee colony. Our bees are our pride and we take the quality of our breeding operations to heart, which is why we've made a policy about it.
Do you have special requests? Contact us and we'll see what we can do.
