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.

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.
