Our queen breeding program involves selecting a number of our best performing queens from previous seasons and open mating their daughters at isolated mating sites surrounded by drone producing colonies selected by us. Our breeder queens and drone mothers are carefully selected using a number of criteria including productivity, gentleness, varroa hardiness and morphometry. Our stock are the indigenous Welsh bees native to the lower Teifi valley. We cannot guarantee the daughters will mate with our own drones, but we have taken steps to increase this probability. Our queens are all checked for a healthy brood pattern before being offered for sale.
They can be collected or posted and will be sent on receipt of payment. They will be sent by first class Royal mail and usually arrive the next day.
