Posting dates for queens

Hi folks
I will update posting times here on the website so no need to email re posting times.
I did the first grafts on 2nd May and it usually takes 4-5 weeks after that date to have the first queens ready.

At the moment I would anticipate being able to post the first queens ordered by mid June.
If you ordered recently, it will be later than that as stated on the order page at the time of your order.

When you make an order, the estimated posting time is always at the top of the order page. I post out queens in the order they are paid for and I don’t have any available at a couple of days notice.

Best wishes,

Jonathan Getty

    Hi Jonathan,

    I ordered 3 Queens for July, would it be possible to get one now? I have a hive that’s failed to requeen, I would be willing to pay extra for the inconvenience.

    Thanks Graeme

  2. Jonathan,
    Is it possible to ship a queen to the netherlands?
    What time will this take and at what price (including papers and shipment)
    Regards,
    Simon
