Queen Ordering Information
We continue to raise the same excellent stock as we do in California by keeping the same genetic lines through insemination of our breeder queens. BIQ has collaborated through the years with Joe Latshaw, Tom Glenn, and Sue Coeby for the inseminating of our Italian breeder queens. We choose our breeder queens based on the hive's performance in honey production, gentleness, brood rearing viability, resistance to mites and other diseases, and overall ability to overwinter healthy and heavy.
