Our Overwintered Queens are always popular and we have Limited Availability so the earlier you order the better!
We'll be moving to Spring Queens from the end of September.
All our Queens are marked unless otherwise specified.
2023 Season Queens will be marked RED as per the internationally recognized color sequence but overwintered Queens are marked YELLOW to differentiate them from Spring Queens.
$85 inc GST
We check, cage and ship our Queens to order - This is likely to be the week you order unless the weather isn't playing ball but we will let you know if there are any delays.
We ship using an overnight courier service
Thanks and Happy Beekeeping
