  • BE-304 Southern Package Bees with Queen - Russian - Shipped from Kentucky

  • Description

    This package includes approximately 3 lbs. of Pure Russian bees and a laying marked 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 Packages will be delivered to your door by UPS. We will contact you once an official ship date has been established and provide a UPS tracking number once your bees have shipped. Tentative ship dates differ by state and are listed below.
