California queens start arriving to Canada around the end of April and come weekly into the beginning of June. Due to the current Covid-19 global pandemic, international cargo flights aren't being booked in advance. This means that confirmation on flights could be short notice. Bulk orders will have the option of arranging pick up at either the airport or at our warehouse location in Port Hope. Small orders will be available for pick up in Port Hope on the day of arrival.
Queens are required to be picked up the day of arrival (at the airport) or the very next day (at our warehouse) after harvest to optimize survival and to avoid forfeiture of the non-refundable livestock purchases.
These queens are reared in California to supply northern genetic queens to the Canadian market before domestic stock is available. Thus giving a boost to early season productivity, and apiary profitability.
Pre-payment in full required on all Queen orders.
