QUEEN - Ontario - Ritchie - DO NOT ORDER without Calling for Availability
Bred by Ontario queen breeder Adam Ritchie.
Our own locally mated queens. From breeders queens with proven hygienic behaviour, honey production and wintering ability. Adam is a member of the Ontario Resistant Honey Bee Selection Program.
Ontario Queens are sustainably bred in Ontario. They are a mix of 70% Carniolan/Buckfast and 30% Italian. They are Bred for their hygienic and friendly behaviour as well as honey production. If it is time for you to add a new queen to your hive, try an Ontario bred queen and see the difference.
They are available on a first come first served basis and are bred in a limited supply.
WE NO LONGER SHIP QUEENS. DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE CARE OF THE QUEENS ARE OUT OF OUR HANDS WHEN THEY MAKE IT TO CANADA POST. WE CANT CONTROL HOW CANADA POST HANDLES THE QUEENS. WE DO NOT WANT TO BE BLAMED IF THE QUEENS DO NOT ARRIVE ALIVE.
Imported and Local Queens are stored in queen banks as standard procedure to ensure the highest quality of health and survival.
We will have Ontario Queen Bees available in June
