Our Unmated Black Honey Bee Company Queens - Apis mellifera mellifera (AMM) are as near native to the Welsh that we can get.  Here our Local Welsh Bee Keepers are very keen to get back to the Native Welsh black bee in the Welsh Countryside, with most of the Area's local hobby Bee Keepers, and some commercial, only keeping Black bees. 

 

These Unmated Queens come from our own personal breeding stock, which have shown to be good layers and produce a good handling bee although it can be a little skitty on the frame.   They produce a good crop of honey and are very hardy and over winter exceptionally well with the minimum of fuss and food.   They are ideal for any beekeeper wanting to try a Black bee breed here in Wales.   

 

They are reared here in our Apiray in North Wales where they can be bought by post or collected from our apiary.  When purchased, the queen bees are supplied in a cage with attendants and she comes unmarked & unclipped - we can mark and clip the queen for a small fee option.

 

We also sell fully Mated and proven laying queens.


Our queen bees usually become available from June to September but this is obviously weather dependent - sometimes, we have spare queens available early in the year before June. These have been overwintered in full hives or full size 6 frame nucs and will have been use for our own production. Email us to check availability and price


We always ask that you are fully sure that you need a queen before buying from us, if you have a questions please do contact us beforehand.

 

Beginners please note that a colony of bees cannot be started with just a queen and need at least a Nucleus Colony of bees


All our bees and queens before shipping are fully disease checked in full accordance with NBU and FERA guidelines.


Queen Bees are only available for shipping to UK mainland addresses.
