Our 2024 live bee packages and nucs are mite-resistant bee stock bred off breeder queens from Latshaw Apiaries. These bees have demonstrated, and most score well when tested for their hygienic behavior and survivability in a treatment-free environment. Many of the queens breeding are into their 5th productive year without any treatments! If that isn't a mite-resistant bee, we may need to rethink some things.


All queens are newly mated in Winter yards in Northern Texas from Winter hardy genetics. The queens are direct descendants of treatment-free and mostly treatment-free queens. These gentle bees perform amazingly well, being hybrids as they have the great characteristics of Italians and Carniolans. Unlike many bees from down South or out West, the queen's genetics come from OH and have cold-weather tolerance. They are also very gentle.


If your bees have struggled due to poor performance, give these bees a try. We think you will not be disappointed by their gentleness, seasonal adaptation, foraging ability, and pest tolerance.

We offer shipping of packages to IA, IL, IN, OH, MI, MO, MN, SD, and WI, as well as offer local pickup in River Falls, WI. All Nucs are pickup-only preferred, as we had issues with shipping Nucs last year. If you need us to ship them, we can. However, there is a higher shipping cost, so that we can put the ProNucs™ in a custom-vented cardboard box.
