Our Queens our promise

Our Queen bees are only bred from reliable healthy productive stock to DPI standards by a qualified Queen breeder.


We use the best breeder queens and mother drone colonies to ensure our queens are perfectly mated for hygiene & disease resistance, honey production and gentleness.


 This is our promise.

Catch cycle

image104

We operate on a 21 day catch cycle, so your future queens have laid a frame of eggs, we can then inspect the laying pattern before we catch and package her up for shipping. 


We also include a minimum of 6 attendant (nurse ) bees with the Queen to keep her well fed and happy on her trip.

Tested Queens

These Queens are introduced into a production hive and held until their progeny hatches and can be inspected for colour, temperament, calmness on the comb, brood laying pattern, disease resistance and honey production. 


Tested Queens have a higher acceptance rate.
