ZZnature offers hardy Mountain State honey bees and queens with VSH genetics and mite destruction genetics from our improved breeding stock. We participate in programs with WV Queen Producers, USDA, and Heartland Queen Breeders to select for the desirable hygienic behavior of VSH, mite resistance and destruction, production, gentleness, and sustainability.
The purchase of instrumental insemination equipment and 2016 training at VP Queens in South Carolina and at Purdue University in Indiana will enable us to instrumentally inseminate a limited number of breeder queens and allow for sharing of genetic material with other breeders.

Availability is based on production and weather conditions for WV queen mating but orders are generally ready in May and June.

To order phone 304-372-3106 beginning January 15, 2017.
