WELCOME TO MIKES BEES AND HONEY!
WELCOME to Mikes Bees and Honey! The Home of Quality Queen bees! Russian, Italian, Cordovan, Carniolan, Minnesota Hygienic, and Breeder Queens, Instrumentally Inseminated Queen bees! I offer Custom Insemination services, Fresh Drone Semen, Pure Honey, Observation hives and Hardwood Bee Equipment, Honeybee removal services. I emphasize Quality over quantity and non use of chemicals in the bee hives as this I believe is NOT good for the bees or us. I am in Northern Ohio, about 2.5 hours from the Canadian border. My Queen Bees are NOT mass produced and "culls" are destroyed as they would not be good producers. Genetic selection and Instrumental Insemination are the basis for my Queens and they are raised from the gentlest hives that are mite resistant and winter hardy and outstanding producers!

Even the frames are also of the same type of wood as the hive ordered! I again thank you for stopping by my site and looking at my products where I emphasize Quality over quantity! Sincerely Michael!
I AM VERY SORRY FOR SHIPPING DELAYS, AS I CANNOT CONTROL THE WEATHER or EVENTS!
Due to the nature and Unpredictability of weather and conditions beyond My control as weather conditions will affect mating and shipping of the Queen bees! I want to make sure the queens delivered are highest quality, laying Queens for your bees! I hope to serve YOU, my customers for many years! If the temp is in the 90's or 40's here in Forest, Ohio I will delay shipping, to protect the Queen Bees! The Queens WILL DIE in shipping as closed trucks to airports, or other. The queens have no ventilation, and or heat in a closed truck etc. and the poor Queens or Nucs will cook or freeze! Please understand me this is to protect the Bees and your purchase money! I thank you all for your business! Sincerely, Michael
