At the January club meeting there were questions about the availability of northern bred queens. A few Midwestern queen suppliers are listed in the RESOURCES section of the this blog. The reader can also do a web search of "Northern Bred Queen Bees". This will provide group of a half dozen suppliers. Finally, look at the web site of the "Northern States Queen Breeders Association (NSQBA.com). This site has another dozen suppliers from 9 northern states (Wisconsin, New York, Vermont, Ohio, etc.) The blog editor has had NO experience with any of these suppliers.
Remember that due to the weather conditions in northern states that northern bred queens or nucs are rarely available before mid June.
