2024 Spring Queen Cells

2024 Spring Queen Cells

Beekeepers - it's time to get your orders in for queen cell!!.  This year in addition to our Survivor stock cells we will be offering VSH(Varroa Sensitive Hygiene), Harbo VSH, and POL 2.2.  

 

Our first priority is bee health, therefore our grafting is done on a small scale.  Grafting will be done to order.    Call or message us to discuss your specific needs.  For orders of 25+ quantity discounts are available.

 

***Disclaimer- Varroa Sensitive Hygiene(VSH) is a genetic trait orr suite of traits that help our bees combat the Varroa Destructor mites by detecting and removing bee pupae that are infested with Varroa mites.  Our Breeder Queens are tested and score very well for VSH using various methods, including UBeeO testing(https://opterabees.com/)and/or Harbo Assay.

 

However, VSH is not a "silver bullet" but is used in conjunction with an intergrated Pest Management system(PM) to reduce Varroa and their associated virus loads over time.  The VSH trait can quickly become diluted and lost through a couple generations of open mating and genetic recombination.  Only by selecting breeder stock through proper testing can the train be maintained.

 

Note:  Our hives are inspected and licensed by the State of Georgia and are for pick up only in Bonaire at this time.
