CGS-VIRGIN - Continental Gold Star (Italian) - minimum order 10 queens - copia
Italian bee selected in north of Italy crossed with Atlantic Buckfast. In spring it develops very quickly forming strong and populous colonies and is perfect for early flowerings such as rapeseed, pollination, production of new colonies or packaged bees. Productive with strong nectariferous flows (like Acacia) can also take advantage of small blooms. It bears good hot summers and cold winters well.
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.
