Many methods of production have been tried & tested.  John has a wealth of knowledge on many aspects regarding queen bees. He has developed specialized equipment and  systems to simplify and make the production of queens more efficient. On offer is a wide range of specialised and practical advice on all of the topics listed above.


John and Judy can travel by campervan to your site to assist and advise on setting up your own “in house” queen bee production unit or you can come to us at Kereru for a hands on learning experience.

It has been said that “you’re not a real beekeeper until you can produce your own queens” and “It is a false economy to not replace queens regularly”  and “ Poor queens make a beekeeper poor”
