These queens are sourced from Olivarez in California. Carniolan queens are a solid choice for the Canadian climate.

Olivarez provides the following additional details regarding their breeding program:
"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"
Marked? No.
