This year I will be importing queens from Australia (Taylor), California (Olivarez), Hawaii (Krones) and Chile. All producer stocks are selected for honey production, gentleness and hygienic traits.
Some background on the following suppliers is outlined: • Australia: - Taylor: Both Carniolan and Italian hybrids available. Ships in 3 hole cages. Largest queen exporter in Australia. • California: - Olivarez: Carniolan (no longer called NWC), Italian (Min Hygienic) and Saskatraz queens available. Queen performance is usually very reliable. Ships in California mini cages. • Hawaii: - Hawaiian Queen Company (Krones): a smaller queen producing operation (50,000 annually) servicing mainland US and some Canadian buyers. Offers Italian and Carniolan hybrids. Ships in 3 hole cages. REQUIRES ADVANCE PAYMENT BY MARCH 17, 2019 • Chilean Queens: - I also have access to Chilean queens and 1 kg packages by Nunez. See queen shipping schedule. Minimum queen order of 50. • Caucasian Queens: - limited numbers may be available third week in May. Not confirmed as supplier working through export process.
