OUR QUEEN BEES
Crystal Bee supply has been producing queen bees since 2008. We are using our survivor stock with desirable traits to graft for our queen bees. The traits we are concentrating on are early build up, strong honey producer and most importantly, survival (over-wintering). Here are queen cells ready to be installed into mating nucs.
"THE BEE IS MORE HONORED THAN OTHER ANIMALS,
NOT BECAUSE SHE LABORS,
BUT BECAUSE SHE LABORS FOR OTHERS"
