  • BE-510-PU Queen Bee - Italian - Woodland, CA - Pick-up Only

  • Description

    Italian queens form the backbone of OHB. We choose our breeder queens based on the hive's performance in honey production, gentleness, brood-rearing viability, and overall ability to overwinter healthy and heavy. In addition, OHB has worked with the "Tech Transfer Team," developed by world-renowned entomologist Marla Spivak, since before its official launch in an effort to identify and maintain desirable traits in our current stock. We've infused the "Minnesota Hygienic" and the "VSH" traits into our Italian stock, in an effort to enhance disease and mite resistance or tolerance. Gentle. Prolific brood producers. Highly hygienic. Good comb builders. Excellent foragers. Excellent honey producers. No cage exchange necessary. Available for pick-up early April in Woodland, CA only. We will contact you to schedule an exact pick-up time once the pick-up date has been established. Queen bee orders are prepaid. Orders are subject to a $5 change or cancellation fee after the prepayment has been processed.

      QUEEN TERMS & CONDITIONS: We will do everything in our power to provide a queen as ordered, however, queen breed is not guaranteed and is based on availability. Queens are guaranteed to be alive upon pick up but are not guaranteed to be successfully introduced to or will be accepted by your hive. Many factors influence queen introduction success, particularly the specific methods and apicultural techniques you employ when introducing a queen. You also agree that Mann Lake will not be responsible for queen survival in your hive, or for the condition or productivity of your hive after introduction. Queens and risk of their loss become the responsibility of the customer at the time of pick up.

      If you would like to place an order to be picked up with your queen, please call 800-880-7694.
