  • BE-304-PU-3 Southern Package Bees with Queen - Russian - Clarkson, KY - Pick-Up Only - Day 2

  • Description

    This package includes approximately 3 lbs. of Pure Russian bees and a laying Pure Russian queen. Queens are open-air mated. Purebred Russian bees do not build their colony populations until pollen is available, and they shut down brood rearing when pollen is scarce. This characteristic makes them suitable in areas where the main honey and pollen flows occur later in the year. They are more resistant to varroa mites. Strengths of Russian honey bees: More resistant to varroa. Highly resistant to tracheal mites. Rear their brood during times of pollen availability. Low likelihood of robbing. Available for pick-up mid April in Clarkson, KY only. We will contact you to schedule an exact pick-up time once the pick-up date has been established. Package bee orders are prepaid. Orders are subject to a $10 change or cancellation fee after the prepayment has been processed.
