Queen Ordering Information
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 inseminate breeder queens (Strachan Apiaries “New World Carniolan”). The queens we produce from these breeders are open-mated with all of our stock for genetic diversity and hybrid vigor.
