2022 Overwintered Mated Queens

** Order Now - Limited Supply **




  • Our queens and attendant bees are shipped in JZBZ mailing cages inside our specially designed recyclable cardboard box which ensures the safe and secure shipping of queens. An image of our packaging is below. 
  • Although we produce many queens each season, we do sell out so please make sure you put your orders in early, so we know when and what you need. 
  • Domestically we use an overnight service via Courier Post although rural delivery can take up to 3 days so please if you live rurally consider sending them to the depot for collection or a town address.  If there are any delays with freight, we can re supply your order, but we tend to ensure freight lines, road, ferries are all operating at the time of dispatch.
  • Regular Bulk orders can be arranged with direct delivery by one of our team. 
  • International Orders are scheduled through DHL or your preferred shipper.
