$35 TOTAL PRICE: $15 deposit and $20 due upon pick-up. Open-mated queens are from no-treatment survivor stock, adapted to the local environment of Brazos Valley, Texas. I produce queens from selected hives, which means considering tradeoffs among survival, honey production and temperament. All queens come marked, but not clipped. No antibiotics, no miticides, no hives exposed to a pollination environment (i.e. fungicides). Pick-up requires an appointment. For delivery by mail, $10 additional per queen for fees and handling.
Available spring and early summer. Due to unpredictable weather conditions, it is hard to predict exactly when and how many queens will be available each year. Contact me for more information.
