Your Nucleus Package will have a locally mated mite resistant queens from our Strong V.S.H. breeder queens with locally adapted bees. This is our fourth year of producing these Queens on Vancouver Island. Let us know! But hurry – there are already strong orders and these will be gone fast! We expect them to be available by mid-May (weather dependent). We will arrange several pickup locations on Vancouver Island. You will need to bring our own equipment for transfer or provide a deposit until you return our transport boxes.
