Product Information


We are sold out of 2018 queens, all payments made now will be for our 2019 queen's expected to be shipped May 2019. 

We do recommend ordering your queens early to avoid any disapointment as our queen numbers are limited.


Our Mated Black Honey Bee Cross Breed Queens come from our own personal breeding stock whhich are generally seen as a very prolific layer and a producer of less skitty bee on the Frame. Being bred by us in Wales from our own proven stock they tend to fly in weather conditions and temperatures that other bees don't.  Due to the number of brood they produce their honey production is exceptional and they overwinter well. 

Our Local black bee cross honey bee colonies ( Nucs ) are bred in our lowland Apiary here in North Wales and come from proven black bee stock which have mild temperament, are very prolific in producing brood.  Whilst they are mainly black bees in colour they have been allowed to mate with other bees here in the local area so they might, and only might show some small colour bands but they are clearly far from the mass of orange seen on buckfast or none Welsh bees. 

They are reared and mated here in our Apiray in North Wales where they can be bought by post or collected from our apiary. They have been kept in a fullsize hive for a minimium of 5 weeks to show they are good layers, after which they can be purchased. The queen bees are supplied in a cage with attendants and she comes unmarked & unclipped.

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 question 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 Neucleus 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.
