Marked 2022 Golden Cordovan Queen-Blue Ridge, TX Pickup
Single Golden Cordovan Queen in a cage ready to install into your hive. She is a 2022 Queen, mated and laying. QUEENS ARE FOR PICKUP ONLY
I used a double screen board to segregate an old, presumably queenless hive. Introduced the golden cordavan queen in a mesh cage for two days. Seeing that she was accepted, I released her and opened the upper and lower ports on the screen board to let the bees merge. After two more days, I reinspected to make sure there was no old queen and removed the double screen board. Two week on, they are doing well and she is laying eggs.
Got my Nuc and it had tons of bees in it. The frames were covered in bees. I did not see a lot of capped brood upon my first inspection (4 days after pickup), but several days after that was tons of capped brood. I have since seen a lot of orange bees flying by the entrance, presumably making a test flight! I think this hive is accelerating in strength 2 weeks since pickup. Quality product thus far and great customer support! Shout out to Ryan and Katie at Dayton.
Queen has settled in and laying with gusto.
All is good! Picking upanother queen on May 6-
She is a pretty queen. Put her in the hive Saturday check on her tomorrow.
This company is more than a company... they teach you beekeeping, they provide you with monthly online free lectures, you can walk in or call to ask questions and get expert answers, they sell you all you need including bees, equipment, feed, etc. What else can you ask for? Thanks TBS. Happy to have you on our side.
I have truly enjoyed the years of working with and being supported by Texas Bee Supply since I began beekeeping almost ten years ago. They are always friendly and helpful. I feel like I’m visiting old friends when I walk in the shop.
