A tip on queen selection:We use both of these queens in our operation. They both have a place in Colorado Beekeeping. I sell both breeds as to give you a choice. We sell each equally.

We Guarantee that all queens will have been establishing the Nuc for at least three weeks minimum before we release the Nuc for sale. This generally has been a recipe for success. This gives you the buyer some piece of mind. Although many of our customers praise our bees, we cannot guarantee any statement of health, nor can we claim that our bees will be 100% free of pest hitchhikers, however your success as a beekeeper matters to us. Proper placement, feeding, forage, and bee care can make your colony a success. Be sure to see our “how to” videos for additional information!

We started taking orders about November 15th 2010 and will continue to take orders until we are sold out some time early March 2011.
Please email Chad for additional information:
We reserve the right to change the type of queen in our nucs, or packages.
