Due to the ongoing situation in Ukraine, and the uncertainty of shipping queens to Canada, Niagara Beeway have cancelled the spring queen supply program.
However, the ABC is offering locally produced queen bees from Revival Queen Bees. These queens are available in our store.
*For 51+ queen purchase orders, please contact us for pricing*
** PICK-UP ONLY at ABC Office Edmonton**
Niagara Beeway worked for five years to obtain a permit to import Carpathian queen bees from the Ukraine to Canada. They are confident that once Alberta beekeepers work with Carpathian queens that they will agree with Niagara Beeway’s description of them as “a winter-hardy premium queen well-suited for the Canadian climate” and that a “high honey yield is a characteristic”. Niagara Beeway will donate $6 from every queen purchased via the Alberta Technology Transfer Program to support our research and extension programs.
Participants in this promotion will be helping us gather data on how well Carpathian queens perform in Alberta. The TTP will follow up with all beekeepers who purchase queens through this promotion to collect feedback on the performance and survivorship of the queens. Alberta needs additional sources for high-quality queen bees – do Carpathian queens fit the bill? Help us find out – and support the TTP at the same time – by purchasing a queen today!
Payment: Payment to be made in full prior to order being placed.
Pick-up information: Queens will need to be picked up at the Alberta Beekeepers Commission office (11434 168 Street #102,Edmonton, AB T5M 3T9). We will inform you by email of the exact date in advance, once shipping is confirmed.
