New Service for 2012 -2013
Our Special - Virgin Queens
We are offering Virgin Queens by mail w/minimum order of 10 for $8.00 each plus shipping. or you can pick up at farm any amount for just $8.00 each.
I have been running test trying to find better acceptance for introducing the Virgin Queen into the hive.
This is what I have come up with that seems to work the best:
When the queen is ready to hatch I place the cell into a Queen cell protector. After she hatches and receives her first royal honey from me, I'll place her into a queen cage and into the hive where she is needed. I'll keep her corked for about three days then remove the cork. The bees then take up to three days to eat the candy and release her. (One problem I have found is that the candy may be to hard at this time.) But, by this time she is very well accepted in the hive as their new queen. If you have to release her on that third day or 6th day I should say, remember, to always keep the cage touching the hive. The bees will not change in attitude at this point and you will know that everything has worked right. The love between them will show. Every Bee in the hive is calm. When you see her and another bee touching their noses together you'll know that all is OK. What is really happening with the nose touch is the nurse bee is feeding her.
Within a few days afterwards she will have gotten all her play out and she will be bred and begin to lay. If you find a queen on the ground and she is by herself. Don't try to capture her. If you have time you can watch her and see which hive she will fly into. Take the time if you can and watch her play all by herself. She is amazed with everything see comes in contact with. She will crawl onto your finger. She may give you a taste and maybe even poke you with her stinger. The licking, tickles, but, when she tries to prod and poke you with her stinger this is a little different. You may wonder what she is doing and you will find out soon enough. Try to just be still. The poke don't really hurt, but, will leave a brown spot where she does stick you. She'll clean herself for a short time after she pokes you and take to flight again.
If you find a small ball of bees on the ground you can bet that there is a queen in there. Break this up quickly and try to save her. You may even have to catch and throw a few of the bees. What happened here is she may have tried to enter the wrong hive and was attacked. You can just let her return to her hive. She won't make the same mistake twice. You will see her full of appreciation and relief upon her release.
If you open a hive and find a ball of bees in there somewhere. The queen entered the wrong hive. Break up the ball and let the queen get loose. She'll quickly find her way back to the right hive. Look around in the hive and you'll see the queen that belongs there. She will be busy eating, measuring and laying without worry.
The Queen may start out laying with only a small patch of Drone eggs in the center, (even before she is bred). but, also with some worker eggs all around. This is normal and a good sign. I think this shows maturity of her will to lay. She can lay at will. She can choose to lay a fertile or non-fertile egg. It shows me a sign that I call this: "She is proud of herself and wants her bloodline to continue ASAP thru the male".
Some of my very best queens were started out this way and yours can too.
I start all my hives out each Spring, all Summer long and in the Fall with Virgin Queens.

This is something special I want to share with you that I wish everyone could have seen. These bees really are very special and we could even learn from them better ways to communicate between ourselves.
I was releasing a virgin queen from a cage and watched her for awhile. When she came out of the cage a nurse bee walked up with her mouth full, surprised to see the queen and started to put the whole hive in a uproar. The nurse bee seemed as though she wanted this queen to be attacked. She seemed confused. Maybe, for the moment she thought this was another queen. She had never before seen her queen outside of the cage she had been kept in. With her mouth full she begin to sound an alarm. The queen quickly ran to her and took her front legs slapping and reaching and grabbed the worker bees cheeks and begin to shake her. Her shake was tender but very firm. The nurse bee then feed the queen as to say she was sorry. The queen walked away bowed up and then shaking herself off and acted as though she could not believe she was being mistaken so quickly by this nurse bee. The nurse bee could have gotten her killed if she hadn't acted so quickly. The Queen then went on to eat some honey and do some measuring. The nurse bee after being stunned for a few moments, suddenly, seemed excited and ran off to get some more honey from a landing forager. She made her way quickly back to The Queen to feed her again. The queen accepted her offer with love and without hesitation. All went very well in the hive after that.
Place order here or call 205-399-5087 and please leave a message if I cannot answer. If you don't hear back from me soon after leaving a message please call again and leave another plus your number. My Cell phone service is crazy sometimes. I've called about this and they say they are putting new towers in to fix this problem but won't be finished until toward the end of Nov. 2011. If I'm in a remote location I don't show any missed calls. I can get the message, but, sometimes the message is not clear enough to understand. Early morning or late evenings is the best time to call my cell number.
Coming Soon. I will be installing a business phone and have someone answer your calls at all times.
I apologize for all the inconvenience this past year with the phone service I have given you. I knew I needed help for this problem and did not do anything to change that. I've been doing all the work and answering the phone, just trying so hard to build this business and offering this much needed service. Sometimes it is hard to answer the phone when I have a frame of bees or a box of bees in my hand or talking to someone else at the time of your call. Again, I am sorry for this and hope we can do a better job with this next year.
I will be posting our new number soon.
You can always call me on my cell phone at 205-399-5087.
Thank you and We Appreciate Your Business.
Office Company hours: Monday thru Saturday 6AM-10PM Central Time
We will be closed on Sunday.
Early Queen Bee Orders
We encourage everyone to Book your Queen Bee orders Early!
Spring is the best time to receive queens if you want to multiply your bees.
Replace your queens to Make Honey. New queens in the spring help to put a stop to swarming. The bees can then just concentrate on growing and making honey.
Queen Bee sales
here should begin around March 25, 2013. and last until around November. So, please keep us in mind in the fall. Fall is a great time also to replace those older queens and these queens will give you a really quick start in the spring and cut down on your swarming problems.
News about 2012 Fall Queens
I had no idea that so many of you would need so many queens in the Fall. The orders filled so quickly and I was so busy I did not even get time to place a buy button on this site.
