Testing of our strain queens

We accord a lot of importance to the breeding of males. We own 200 hives provided with males frames, all located on a circle of 5 km of diameter. On our production, over 50 different strains take part of the queens’ fertilisation. We hope to improve significantly the vitality and the natural defence of the colonies with this large genetic diversity.

The queens are fertilised either in nuclei of type Kieler, in Maxi+ or in 6 frame hives. Those queens are also on apiaries specially dedicated to the fertilisation situated in the centre of the perimeter.
According to the colonies behaviour in a case of natural change of queen in the hive, our estimation is that over 90% of our breeding males are participating to the fertilisation.

You can graft with low risk on our queens.
