Hobby Day - OHB Carniolan Queens

Please note, all orders must be picked up in person at Hobby Day in Orland, California. Limited quantities available.

Don't miss out on ordering your Hobby Day queen bees from OHB! This is the one time a year we offer our queens direct to you onsite at our annual Hobby Day event in Orland, CA.

Carniolans are known for their winter hardiness, rapid spring buildup, and exceptional honey production. They show excellent resistance to tracheal mites and are great comb builders. OHB has sources for instrumentally inseminated breeder queens. The queens we produce from these breeders are open-mated with all of our stock for genetic diversity and hybrid vigor.

Carniolan traits:

  • A good choice for colder climates
  • More likely to forage on cool, wet days than other bees
  • Quick to brood up when nectar is available
  • Excellent honey producers

$41.75 per queen (max 10 queens per breed, 30 queens total per order)
