Our open mated production queens for sale will be grafted from several different winter proven Carniolan breeder queens throughout the queen rearing season. Over the years our breeder stock of instrumentally inseminated queens have included Sue Cobey's New World Carniolan line, Latshaw Apiaries Carniolan line, and VP Queen's Spartan line(VSH). An emphasis will be placed on saturating the mating yards with drones from our overwintered honey production colonies to increase our virgin queens mating with our Carniolan drones. All queens will be 21-28 days old, and they will have capped brood prior to being caged for shipping. Queens are caged either the day of or the day prior to shipping and are never stored in a queen bank.
