Thanks for visiting the LASI Store. Our hygienic queen bees are now available to beekeepers in the UK. For information on LASI Queen Bees, please visit our site at www.lasiqueenbees.com.
Our queen bees are reared in batches and it is crucial when ordering a queen that a batch is selected. Posting the bees will take up to 2 days and customers must be available to receive the bees for introduction into a hive. The date on which a batch is ready is influenced by many factors and may be subject to change.
Do not prepare any queenless nucs for your new queen, until you have confirmation from LASI Queen Bees that your queen has been dispatched.
THE PRICE OF OUR QUEEN BEES INCLUDES DELIVERY.
Tested Open-Mated Daughters of Hygienic Breeder Queens
These queens are reared from hygienic breeder colonies which we have tested using the freeze-killed brood bioassay and which are highly hygienic. After mating, queens are set up in hives at LASI and allowed to lay eggs so that 2 months later the workers in the colonies are daughters of the new queens. The colonies will then be tested 3 times using the freeze-killed brood removal bioassay. Only queens which test as highly hygienic (>95% removal of freeze-killed brood) will be supplied. These queens can be used as breeding stock by queen rearers and beekeeping associations
