Untested Instrumentally Inseminated Breeder Queens
These breeder queens are shipped UPS next day air the day after insemination. These queens are not yet laying. They are more of a gamble in regards to introduction success, which is why they're cheaper. These VSH queens have been inseminated at around 10 days of age with drones from our top VSH tested stock. All breeding stock used received top scores on Harbo's VSH assay (zero % mite reproduction.) Due to a tight schedule this year I will likely will not start shipping these until the week of May 23 through the week of 13 June. I recommend introducing into hopelessly queenless colonies (no eggs or young larvae), bulk bees, or queenless packages. Please read my blog post on freshly II'd queen intoduction before ordering.
