These carniolin queens are brought in for us, and originate from Olivarez in California.

Some info on these queens from the producer Olivarez:

"Carniolans are known for their winter hardiness, rapid spring buildup, and exceptional honey production. They show excellent resistance to tracheal mites and are great comb builders. OHB has several sources for instrumentally inseminated breeder queens. The queens we produce from these breeders are open-mated with all of our stock for genetic diversity and hybrid vigor.

Carniolan traits:

  • A good choice for colder climates
  • More likely to forage on cool, wet days than other bees
  • Quick to brood up when nectar is available
  • Excellent honey producers"

Shipping: Queens will be shipped PRIORITY in ventilated boxes via Canada Post and will be trackable. There is NO insurance on live bees provided by Canada Post. Queens will be shipped out so as to ensure the shortest time possible in transit; for example, if they arrive on a Friday we will wait until Monday to ship them to avoid them waiting over the weekend in the postal system.

--

Note: We recommend checking out with only one form of live bee reservation at a time and to order equipment/supplies on a separate order. This helps minimize customer confusion regarding when products are available for pick-up, when and which products are shipping, the price for shipping of products versus queen shipping, etc.

For example, if you are ordering (1) queens, (2) a nuc, and (3) other types of products, we recommend placing 3 orders: one for the queens, another for the nuc, and another for those products. We also recommend ordering different queen types on different orders as well.
