BGS-VIRGIN - Boreal Gold Star (Italian) - minimum order 10 queens
Italian bee selected in Finland for over thirty years. Extremely sweet. In spring it develops according to the rhythm of the season, and arrives ready for harvest without impulse to swarm. It bears very well long, cold winters. Excellent for queens breeding and royal jelly production. Due to its docility and low propensity to swarming, it's very good for urban beekeeping.
If you can count on a good availability of mature drones, virgin queens are the best way to test our genetic lines at low costs. On-site fertilization also allows bees to adapt much faster to the new environment. On the other hand, the acceptance of the virgin queens depends very much on the introduction technique.
