Kelley Mutt Queens!

While we’ve had colonies raise their own queens after a swarm, the queens in these pictures are the first “mutt queens” we’ve reared that will be placed in nucs for requeening hives later this year.

We certainly aren’t expert queen producers, but I have a plan to try and produce a line of queens that will be genetically diverse, as well as productive, gentle, and resistant to mites and disease.

At this time we won’t be offering any of our queens for sale, but after we have gained some experience and developed a line of mutt queens with desirable traits, we might begin selling our extras.
