Virgin, unclipped

Virgin queen is caged from the moment she is emerging in the incubator, is no more than 48hrs old and arrive in an introduction cage accompanied by some workers

This is a ideal age to introduce into your own mating nucs or colonies. Virgin queens tend to be readily accepted into queenless colonies, however there is a risk in getting them successfully mated. 

Please note, virgin queens are more at risk of deterioration compared with mated queens and need to be introduced into your colony as soon as possible when you have received them.

IMPORTANT! Acceptance is never guaranteed. We cannot do anything should your colony reject the Queen (even when following correct procedures).

In the event of the Queen arriving dead, you must inform us immediately within 24 hrs with a photo proof sent to us for a replacement. Queen must then be sent to us in an original cage for our inspection. However, we cannot refund delivery charges.
