Queens now finished for the season. Please check back in Spring 2019.  Email:

     Queens are $25.00.  I prefer to ship UPS ground in the one day delivery area from Lancaster, OH (43130).  I ship Monday through Wednesday only to avoid weekends if there is a mishap in shipping. Shipping costs are typically $14.00.  If you want your queen(s) shipped via the Post Office I will do so priority mail with insurance if desired, at the buyers risk and the buyer is responsible for any claims with the post office. Shipped orders are invoiced via Paypal.
 cells to mate with your own drones, please email.  By arrangement only.  Thanks.    

      I can now accept Debit/credit cards at pickup WITH ADVANCE NOTICE.  All our queens are of mixed stock - open mated and marked.  I try to maintain a variety of races/lines in the mating area for diversity as well as drone saturation from desirable colonies.    

     Please email for queen availability. Thanks.  Email:
