Regular price $140.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

3 pound package of Italian Bees.

Cordovan Italian Queens from Koehnen Apiaries.  These are high quality queens, good at keeping mites down and over winter well.  You still need to treat for mites under a standard IPM program.

These queens are mated.

Current pickup time is April 23rd afternoon but subject to change.

Message from Koehnen:

At the request of beekeepers in colder climates of the Northern states, we also produce the Carniolan cross. Our Carniolan breeders are mated in an isolated area and observed for a year prior to use in our breeding program. The Carniolan virgins are mated with our Italian drones, resulting in an excellent mix of both Italian and Carniolan traits which many customers prefer. The queen exhibits typical Carniolan overwintering behavior and her offspring possess the gentleness of our Italians.
