2021 (F1) CARNIOLAN QUEENS
We are inspected and approved for bee and queen sales in Pennsylvania. We value bees with gentle traits and well suited to the region. We will have F1 Carniolan queens for sale during mid to late summer, if you need to re-queen. F1 queens are the daughters of a VSH (mite resistant) Carniolan “breeder” queen. This gives you hybrid vigor with the pure Carniolan traits.
If you are interested in a queen to re-queen in July or August before fall, contact us. We will have some queens available July-September for 2021. Queens must be picked up–we are not shipping at this time.
These quality queens are open-mated and verified to be laying well (good laying pattern) before being sold. Repeat customers receive a $5 discount on F1 Carniolan queens. 50% discount on F1 Carniolan queens for any neighbors within 3 miles of Opossum Lake.
Late March-Early April Queens: $50, including marking (Carniolan hybrid or Italian–must request 2 weeks in advance, as these are ordered in)
Mid-late April F1 Carniolan Queens: $30, including marking (these are open mated, laying queens from our Carniolan breeder queen)
Early May-September F1 Carniolan Queens: $30, including marking (these are open mated, laying queens from our Carniolan breeder queen)
2021 ITALIAN AND RUSSIAN QUEENS
We will have a limited number of new and laying well (good laying pattern) Italian ($20) and Russian hybrid ($25 each) queens starting in July. These are unmarked, but can be marked by request ($5 fee).
