Offering Queen stock developed by the Ohio Queen program I  have been successfully grafting and raising queens. The queens being sold have been evaluated and are continuing to be evaluated for 1) Winter Survival in Ohio, 2) Gentleness,  3)Honey production, 4) Good brood pattern. My queen stock is primarily Carniolan origin and the drone stock is primarily carniolan. However, as open-mated Queens, they are not being sold as pure Carniolan.  In fact, I’m so sure of the quality of my queens that I will replace any queen that 1) is poorly mated ( becomes a drone laying queen later in the season) 2) displays aggressive behavior 3) is laying a poor brood pattern.  I’m not responsible if the queen is not introduced properly to the hive.
