This is a single marked queen bee in a cage used for requeening or splitting hives. This queen is not needed if you purchase our nucs or hives as they will already have a queen installed.
Our Italian/Carniolan queen bees are bred for gentleness, honey production and resistance to disease and mites. These are the beekeeper’s dream queens and the most popular queens raised in America. Italian/ Carniolan queen bees are available March-July on a first come, first served basis. Get your orders in early to ensure you will get as many of these beauties as you need!
We order our queens marked, in wooden cages with attendants from areas outside Texas. Please ask us about this if you are considering queens raised in Texas and we will be glad to share the reasons we do not personally or professionally use queens raised locally.
Please note: We do not ship queens. They must be picked up at Texas Bee Supply.
