Select Instrumentally Inseminated VSH Breeder Queen
These breeder queens are the cream of the crop. They are instrumentally inseminated queens from our stock, that have been laying in their own nucleus colony for a minimum of 3-4 weeks. The queens are daughters of bees that survived and thrived in an untreated apiary, and had top scores Harbo's VSH assay (zero % mite reproduction). They have been inseminated with drones from favorable, high VSH colonies, tested in the same manner.
Due to scheduling constraints with me finishing a MS in entomology in Spring 2022, I intend to hoard all these for my breeding program and will not be offering these for sale.
