Canaan Honey (Michael) has partnered with long time queen bee producer Allan Richards to provide quality queen bees for sale. We have been using the Allan’s queens for a number of years and can attest to their quality. Queen Cells are best picked up from our depot in Whanganui. You need to take them away in a queen incubator or warmed container. Virgin and mated queens come in cages with attendants and are easily able to be couriered North Island wide.
- Queen Cells $7
- Virgin Queens $15
- Mated Queens – Autumn 2022 Queens $115 till Oct 24th, then new seasons Queens $57.50
Mated queens are only released for sale once they are mature which is just over one brood cycle. This means we can see they have a good brood pattern with no brood disease and that there pheromone levels are high giving them a far better chance at being accepted into the colony as a new queen.
Queens are available weekly on Tuesday’s and Thursdays. Call us to book your queens now – Michael m 021 728889 or use the booking form below.
