SOLD OUT FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR!
Due to bad weather and various other issues I will not be able to take any new orders.
Please check the quality queens offered by the other 5 breeders on this website. They are all excellent queen breeders.
VERY SORRY FOR THIS — THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING
This is Lisa G. I had the opportunity to purchase Ankle biter queens from you last year. I am extremely pleased with the results. My first Varroa test of 2017 was 0 mites per 300 bees using an alcohol wash. How does that happen? 🙂
I am writing today to get on your waiting list for 2 more ankle biter queens. I understand that what you have on hand now are spoken for but I’m not in a hurry. As I noted above mine are doing fine, I just want to keep it that way. My goal is get more of the ankle biter genes into the general bee population.
I appreciate everything you are doing to fight the Varroa invasion.
Just wanted to let you know the girls came through winter and our strange spring of warm for a month, then freezing, then warm again. The Purdue’s are going gang busters and I split it once (moved the queen out so I don’t lose her) and I think I’m going to need to do a second split on them. The Mountain bees are good too.
Hope you had a good winter and your bees did well. I just want to report that the one queen of yours that I have made it through our Northern Vermont winter and is doing very well. I am so impressed how gentle her offspring are, even during overcast and rainy days. Are all your queens gentle? I need no smoke and I might not (have not tried yet), a veil. I would like to purchase two more queens if you do any grafting this summer. I am so impressed with your West Virginia Ankle Bitter queens I now want their genes in my general bee pool, which I have started already with drones from the one I already have.
Dan marked each of the queens with a lovely yellow dot. Now EVERYONE can find a queen, not just Maggie.
I was really amazed at the quality packing job from Dan O’Hanlon. They were packed to deal with FedEx and a three day long trip. When we opened the box there seemed to be five full cups of nurse bees, an huge piece of fondant, and a nice water source.
