5 Frame Nucs in medium and deep; 3lb Packages and Premium Mated Queens

We are using all Premium Breeder Queens for our grafting from VSH Carniolan Survivor Queens. All our bees are raised and stay in WNY. We are using Instrumental Insemination to control and improve our stocks and have new genetics coming in every year to keep strong hardy queens. Our bees are calm, hygienic, productive, and have great winter survival. Our Nucs start being ready after the middle of May through June. We will have queens later in May throughout the summer. Further information can be found on our website.

Servicing All of WNY through to Lake Ontario, we rescue and remove LIVE HONEY BEES from your home, business, building, attic, trees, bushes, and structures. The LIVE HONEY BEES are moved far from your location, where they can flourish and help pollinate local crops and flowers. We repair damage in walls and ceilings caused by the live bee extraction. Yes, we are fully insured. And the honey from our apiary is out of this world!

— Robust, over-wintered Nucs available beginning in May –
