2016 SPRING-MADE 5-frame Starter Colony with Minnesota-hardy Hygienic Queen

from 195.00

Available late June - early July 2016
These hives are made in the spring from over-wintered genetics, but have yet to experience a Minnesota winter. 

These hives are good for a midseason re-Queen/boost to a failing hive OR  transfer them into a Langstroth hive and let them build them up for winter. You will likely get surplus honey to extract for yourselves (weather dependent). 

Choose between the MN Metro Line or the MN Northern Line of genetics. The MN Northern Line withstands a winter that is on average 10 degrees colder and lasts considerably longer than winter in the Metro Area.
