Periodically during the beekeeping season, we will have queen cells available for local pick up. Typically the queen will be born within 1-3 days of pick up, so time must be allocated to visit your beeyard(s) within 24 -48 hours of picking up the queen/queen cell.
If you are interested in getting on our Queen Mailing List for updates on availability, please eMail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our queens are grafted from overwintered, disease-free colonies that exhibit the following traits:
- Hygienic behaviour
- Overwintering success; wintering ability
- Mite resistance
- Grooming behavior
- Good honey production
- Good Spring build up
The Heritage Bee Co. has its Special Permit from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) to sell queens and nucs in Ontario only.
We are a Certified Naturally Grown apiary, and follow all of the organic management practices to keep our bees healthy.
