OHB's Italian Queen Bees – the epitome of excellence in beekeeping. As the cornerstone of our operations, Italian bees are meticulously selected for their unrivaled performance across essential metrics: honey production, gentle temperament, robust brood-rearing capabilities, and resilience in overwintering. At OHB, we spare no effort in our rigorous selection process for breeder queens, ensuring that only the most exceptional specimens contribute to our stock, prioritizing the health and productivity of every hive.

But our commitment to excellence doesn't end there. OHB proudly collaborates with the renowned "Tech Transfer Team," under the guidance of esteemed entomologist Marla Spivak, long before its formal inception. This partnership is dedicated to continually refining and preserving the desirable traits within our bee population. By integrating traits such as the "Minnesota Hygienic" and the "VSH," recognized for their unparalleled disease and mite resistance, into our Italian stock, we fortify our bees against environmental challenges, ensuring their longevity and vitality.

Experience the excellence of OHB's Italian Queen Bees – meticulously bred for performance, resilience, and adaptability. Elevate your beekeeping journey with bees that embody the pinnacle of quality and innovation, only from OHB.
