Untested Instrumentally Inseminated Breeder Queens

Untested Instrumentally Inseminated Breeder Queens


These  breeder queens are typically shipped the day after insemination, and are not yet laying. This means they are more of a gamble in regards to introduction success, which is why they're cheaper. They have been inseminated at around 9 days of age with drones from our VSH tested stock. I will ship them next day air after the insemination procedure. I should be able to ship them between the months of May and June. I recommend introducing into hopelessly queenless colonies (no eggs or young larvae), bulk bees, or queenless packages. I've had great luck introducing them into a few pounds of bees shaken into a nuc box with drawn comb and a syrup feeder.
