The queen yard is back in action. Queens will be available throughout the summer–I wrap up queen production at the end of August. The breeding pool is predominantly Carniolan.
The queens are $18 each (plus shipping/handling), and they are all marked. I ship throughout the continental USA. Monday is the usual shipping day, but sometimes I send a few out on Tuesday or Wednesday–especially if it’s an express delivery.
I have relocated to the Cedar Rapids area, and people are welcome to call ahead in order to arrange pickup if that is desired.
So far, the weather has cooperated well enough for afternoon mating flights, so fertilization has not been a problem this year.
Good luck as the honey flows get underway!
