Thank you to the many people who attended our free beginner beekeeping classes over the past six weeks. We continue to receive questions and have made a quick Q&A list to help everyone out.
Q: Will the queen that comes with the box be marked or unmarked?
A: The queen will be unmarked
Q: Can you tell me whether the bees I am getting have been treated for Vorroa mites? And if they have, what chemical or brand name treatment was used?
A: All commercial bee’s are treated for mites. They will be treated with Apivar no more than twice, most likely just once.
Q: When was it or will it be applied?
A: The nuc packages are created on new frames so the frames will not be inundated with chemicals.
