VSH Virgin Queen Pre-Order from Stevens Bee Co. SBGMI Pays Shipping For SBGMI Members. Pickup date will be announced to members when available.
From the Stevensbeeco.com Website: These virgin queens are daughters from our top instrumentally inseminated breeder queens. The breeders have proven themselves to be productive and thrive in an untreated apiary, and have top scores on Harbo’s VSH assay (zero % mite reproduction). I generally ship on Mondays as I have queens emerging each weekend during the Spring. I plan to stop shipping by mid June 2023. I will do my best to accommodate. Please read my blog post on introducing virgin queens before ordering. Thanks!
