Product Details

Queen availability is limited by the weather and demand. We try to keep queens in stock at the store, but cannot guarantee their availability. \

PICKUP DETAILS: We are not always able to run out to the bee yard during store hours to grab a queen, so it is best to order it on the website and let us know when you would like to pick them up. 

If we are sold out, we will take pre-orders for mated queens and will note that in the listing. It is first paid first served for our mated queens.

We have mated queen bees for sale for pickup from our store in Alabama. 

A mated queen can make splitting a hive much easier during the spring or the fall. Installing a mated queen into a queenless hive can save your colony or increase your apiary size. 

Pickup dates from our retail store will vary based on weather, so we will communicate any changes if the weather does not cooperate. 

VSH Italian Queens from California - Mated queen in a JZBZ cage with attendants that has been bred for its ability to use the bee's natural ability to detect and remove varroa mites. VSH stands for Varroa Sensitive Hygeine.  

Local Queens - These queens are mated in Alabama. 

The Italian bees are docile and a favorite choice of both commercial and beginner beekeepers. Italians have a long brood cycle that is great for areas with plentiful forage and shorter winters. Italian queens brood up quickly in the spring, making them popular for beekeepers who do almond pollination. They tend to be low to moderate propolis producers. Italian bees are excellent honey producers.
