Overwintered Buckfast Queens Artificially Inseminated (Apis Mellifera Buckfast)

Suitable for production of queens.
The great benefit of these queen bees is that they have confirmed the overwintering ability of their bees.
As the overwintered queen bee is a mature queen, it will be easily accepted in the new colony.
We keep them in 6 frame hives and are ready for delivery as soon as the temperature permits transportation.
We have a limited number of Buckfast Queens, so pre-order is required.
