Wildflower Meadows’ queen bees are selected for mite resistance, gentleness, and rapid spring buildup.
Wildflower Meadows’ genetics are anything but conventional. We cross the best mite resistant VSH queens with the most productive hygienic Italian lines, then cross them again with extraordinarily gentle Italian bees, and then yet again with mite resistant USDA Pol-Line stock. Working closely with our customers – including some of the leading commercial beekeepers – we solicit ongoing feedback, which enables us to continuously take a fresh look at what makes a healthy queen bee.
The results are our Wildflower Meadows’ VSH-Italian queen bees – the latest and best generation of genetics to help you experience renewed success in beekeeping.
