Kona Imported Queens - Hawaii 2024


Kona queens from Hawaii start arriving to Canada approximately mid April and arrive weekly until the end of July.

The Italian or Ligustica honey bee is the most popular in the world. Kona Queen Breeder Queens and Drone Mothers are chosen from top commercial honey producing colonies.

These production-proven queens pass other stringent tests regarding temperament, hygienic behavior, mite tolerance, and resistance to diseases. Our Italians produce large frames of brood in a tight pattern. 

Kona Italian queens will expand their brood patterns when stimulated and reduce brood rearing after the honey flow. These queens are selected to require less supplemental feeding than other Italian breeds. They are excellent honey producers and less likely to swarm.
