Single Golden Cordovan Queen in a cage ready to install into your hive. She is a 2023 Queen, mated and laying. QUEENS ARE FOR PICKUP ONLY
I am always so pleased with my purchases and I am always so pleased with going to Blue Ridge and talking with another bee lover. My 2 Cordovan Queens were accepted into their hives and now I am confidant that the winter will not be a problem for them or me. Keep up the great work and pleasant conversations.
Great experience, I have already placed a second order
Introduced the new Queen and it seemed she was excepted. The next inspection I did not see her, do not know if a second new Queen was present but there were new eggs. Second inspection still did not see a Queen but there were a lot of brood, larva and eggs so something good happen.
Picked her up and place her into the hive right away. The hive released her and all seems well so far. Very gentle hive.
I have gotten 3 Cordovan and 1 Italian Queen from The Bee Supply and I have been so pleased and happy with them. They produce wonderfully big bees and the temperament is fantastic. I even passed my experience along to a friend and he now, buys Queens from The Bee Supply. Keep up the great work. Donna
We ordered a new queen bee because our hive had gone queenless. Fortunately, we installed her in time. After 7 days, she has produced many cells of eggs, larve, and capped brood. Such a welcomed sight!
I had a problem with my initial order and the store responded immediately. Fantastic customer service.
Since finding Texas Bee Supply we have ordered from them for several years now. We would get stuff at Attwoods. But not any more since TBS. Our latest purchase was glass honey jars, and the price was cheaper or comparable to Amason or other bee supply companies. Besides, they are close enough, we show great support for our Texas Companies, and we have gotten to know the employees and they are great folks! Very informed and so gracious to help with all questions and concerns.
We always have a good day driving to Dayton to get bee supplies. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We always learn a little bit more every time we visit.
The queen seems to be doing great. My first time splitting all good so far.
Re-queening aggressive hives with the extremely calm Golden Cordovan hive. I can’t wait to have a new non aggressive hive again.
Queen was accepted, and went to work right away. New eggs in ~ 70% of open cells in 10 days.
The queens worked out great. Healthy and productive. As always, enjoyed seeing all my friends at the BlueRidge store.
Two out of the three successfully installed into their hives. The third, unfortunately, died in her cage (as did all of her attendants) during the four day "introduction." They were alive at the time of installation, but not at cage retrieval. All were dead, and still in the box. I don't know what went wrong.
Beautiful golden❤️ Red marked Queen, is laying and doing great
Pick up was quick and smooth. She is a beautiful queen.
Every queen bee I have bought here has been great.
I have bought a lot of equipment and bees over the years. I buy my stuff hear now because of the quality and service. I also will let you know all the help in the way of training is amazing.
Great service and friendly staff.
