The Mated Queen Bee is the cornerstone of your colony

Produced by Beeopic in the Bay Area or by our beekeepers/queen breeders partners in California, from the Central Valley to the isolated Northern Coast Ranges.
We offer the best quality of Californian mated queen bee as possible! Each queen has been hand-picked and evaluated by a master beekeeper in mating nucs before being shipped to you.

A queen naturally lives up to 5 years. After her first birthday, the queen will be more likely to swarm and will not winter as well as in its first season.
At Beeopic we advise you to renew the queen in your colony every 1-2 years.

Composition of our mated queen bee offer:

  • 1 VSH Mated Queen Bee
  • A few bees (everybody is in a queen cage, no worries!)
  • 3 holes cage or JZBZ cage
