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”.

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!

Additional information is available on the Niagara Beeway website.

  • Queens Ship At Buyers Risk
  • Refundable in the case of delivery interruption due to factors out of our control.
* The TTP does not endorse Carpathian queens or the supplier.
