2011 Queen Orders

Thanks for all the calls on queens so far this year–it seems to increase every summer. I’m working on getting more mating nucs in a new yard to help keep up with demand. Right now the earliest date I can ship new orders is June 27 (Monday). It’s a good idea to order several days in advance if possible.

I also wanted to post a couple of pictures that Alex took of a Carniolan queen laying eggs in a new comb. A lot of the queens are really extended this time of year because they are laying so many eggs, but this one seems a little longer than usual.
