2019 Mated Queen

35.00

Includes one (1) mated, laying queen raised in the spring of 2019, in a cage with an attendant and sugar candy for overnight travel. Queens are open mated in Sonoma or Marin county, depending on which stock you order.

My selection criteria include the following: Varroa sensitive behavior (meaning the bees will detect and remove mites in capped brood), those who display no signs of disease or pathogen, overwinter well, build up well in the spring, produce enough honey to harvest, and are gentle enough to work without a suit or gloves. 

Queens will need to be placed in hive within 18 hours and will need to be kept in controlled temperature of 65-80 degrees F until placed in hive. Jennifer Berry Bees is not responsible for queens lost due to negligence or rejection by new hive. We guarantee that queens will lay and will replace any that do not perform within 6 weeks of purchase.
