    Queen bee

    by Ed Rolfs on May 08, 2024

    My experience with the Saskatraz bees has been excellent. They are very easy to work with and seem quite productive. Be aware that they ship these in a candiless container and instruct you to put a marshmellow in the end. This is quite problematic after you've opened your package and are in the middle of installation. I ordered the replacement to ensure a queen in the hive. (I now have a bag of marshmellows!

    I ordered the Saskatraz queen a few weeks ago for a queenless colony I had and after installing she was out of her cage in about two days then these bees went to work , I suffered a bear attack on this swarm a few days ago and of course it was pouring rain however this swarm was still pulling in pollen and they were still kinda gentle as I put them back together so now they’re back together working hard I will surely buy this breed of queen again certainly impressive so far
