Italian or VSH Queens
Autumn Morning Farm offers a variety of 3lb Italian Package Bee options for New as well as Experienced Beekeepers.
Packages are available for pick up in the spring.
Autumn Morning Farm offers Italian Bee Packages with two queen options: Italian or VSH to allow beekeepers to add genetic diveristy to their apiary.
Italian Queens produce off spring that are gentle and calm, lay a solid brood pattern, producing lots
of bees late into the fall and produce a surplus of honey.
Varroa Sensitive Hygiene(VSH) Queens are a great part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) System in working towards
decreasing chemical use in the hive. VSH Bees are exceptionally gentle and calm, have a moderate tendency to swarm, rapid population buildup in early spring, are frugal with their resources
therefore over-winter with a smaller cluster size and fewer stores, excellant foragers, honey producers and comb builders.
