What makes our Queen Bees better?
Our Apis mellifera carnica queen bees are extremely well suited for building bee colonies in most geographies around Europe:
Isolated and mountainous breeding area
The isolated and mountainous environment means that our queen mating station is separated from foreign drones.
Robust, durable, and able to withstand harsh climatic conditions
The harsh winters and high altitudes select for robust and highly adaptable bee colonies.
Exceptionally Docile Bees
Our bees are noted for their docile and non-aggressive nature. They remain undisturbed when managing the hives, and do not attack the beekeeper.
Remote natural forest and meadows
The rural environment is free from intensive agriculture or other mass-farming activities.
Hardy Overwintering – reduced winter egg laying period
Carnica-Cimala Queens take a two month break in laying eggs during winter. So our colonies have ability to remain up to four months during winter season without a cleansing flight.
Rapid Spring start for early nectar flow
Because the spring nectar flow is the most reliable, we select for bee queens whose colonies have a quick start in spring.
Large Dadant bee hives
We breed our colonies in spacious Dadant hives, which are roomy enough for our big and thriving bee colonies.
