Random mated queen bees are produced at first class, tested and hygienic breeder queens which also show VSH qualities.
Virgin queen bees are open mated at our mating stations, surrounded only by Authentic Apis mellifera carnica colonies. 95 % of all colonies are registered, controlled and of known origin in radius of 3 km. 98 % of all colonies are registered and controlled in radius of 6 km. Those colonies provide a wide variety of Authentic Carniolan drones mostly produced by first class, tested, hygienic breeder queens. That ensures the vitality and the variety of future bee population.
