Our queen honey bees are produced locally from survivor stock in our Minooka, IL mating yard (currently 125+ mating nucs).    We graft from selected queen bee that have survived one or more Chicagoland winters and meet our criteria for honey production, temperament, and disease / mite resistance.   We work with neighbors surrounding our mating yard to create a ring of desirable drones 1/2 to 1 mile out.  Their laying patterns are evaluated before offering them for sale.

Mated / marked Illinois queen bee are $35 throughout the spring, summer and fall and are available for pickup as well as shipping.  Call 815-521-9116 or email dave@meyerbees.com for details and to arrange a purchase.

Bee packages and nucs are available seasonally.
