Our Bee Breeding Work
We offer both our Northumberland Buckfast and Northumberland Dark Bees for sale as Virgin Queens as well as Mated Queens.
Virgin Queens are posted on the same day as hatching to ensure they arrive with you around 24-48 hours old. The perfect age to introduced into your own mating nucs.
Coupled with the fact virgin queens are cheaper, these queens may be more of an economical solution for you.
We use Apidea Mating Nucs, finding mating success to be strong, and being able to fully assess queens laying patterns prior to dispatch. Matings are acheived naturally on the whole, working from 40 drone rearing colonies. 20 Buckfast type around our Buckfast mating apiary, and 20 Dark bee type drone rearers around our Dark bee mating apairy.
We have both Mated Queens for Sale and Virgin Queens for Sale as well as instrumentally inseminated Queens for Sale.
