These buckfast queens are sourced from Tenuta Ritiro in Italy. You can find more information on them following this link. From the producer:

"Buckfast is not a breed, but the best and most complete selection system in the world of beekeeping. It is based on the isolation of the best characters of each subspecies of honey apis, evolved in a very wide geographical basin, concentrating them, combining them and stabilizing them in selection lines. Only by drawing from a vastness of hereditary traits, fixing them and maintaining them through a certain genealogy, it is possible to select productive bees, resistant to pathologies and adaptable to climate-environmental changes."

Pick-up: Available
Shipping: Available in BC ONLY via Canada Post Priority Service ($30 added to shipping cost at check-out.)
Queen Marked: Yes
Attendants: Includes attendants in the queen cage.

--

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.
