Single Italian/Carniolan Queen in a cage ready to install into your hive. She is a 2022 Queen, mated and laying. QUEENS ARE FOR PICKUP ONLY
Ordered 3 queens, they're doing great!
All was wonderful!
Everyone at the store was nice, helpful and my order was ready on time!
Great people, great service, great products and great queens!!
I purchased 2 Cordovan Queens and picked them up on April 9th. I was taught how to feed a little honey and drop of water prior to placing the queens in their new split hives. I installed the queens 36 hours after arriving at home and 24 hours after splitting the hives, then checked the hives 3 days later to see if the queens had been released. One queen had been released, the other had a dead nurse bee blocking the exit (which I carefully removed). To note: both hives were responding positively to the new queens - they were so calm!
I will inspect both at 1 week to see if I have signs of brood.
I can't say enough positive about Ryan's help in this process. He showed me how to feed and answered my questions and helped me with supplies - all with a smile on his face. Thank you Ryan!
