Our Bees PDF Print E-mail

We use Buckfast theory and selection methods to breed our bees and the result is an excellent strain of honey bee that is a pleasure to work with, docile, easily managed, has a low swarming index, creates large colony populations yet is thrifty with its stores and of course gives a high honey production. Regular testing as carried to monitor disease resistance.

It is not a particular race or subspecies of bee, as we have taken genetic material from various bee populations to add their desirable characteristics to our stock which is genetically stable. We adopted the name “Superbee” as some of our genetic material does not originate from Buckfast and think it is misleading to label them as Buckfast.

Our queens are available from late March till December, but as demand for the early queens usually far exceeds supply, it is necessary to reserve your queens as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment. Queens are sent in JzBz plastic cages with 7 attendant bees to look after the queen during transit. All queens are at least one month old at the time of sale having been tested in their mating nucs.

Full details on how to introduce your new queens are sent with confirmation of each order.
