Posting dates for queens June update

Queens ordered now will most likely be ready some time in the first half of July depending upon the weather . I post out queens in the order they have been paid for and I always check first to arrange a suitable posting date.

I have just started to post out the first queens which were ordered at the end of 2016.

The weather has turned poor since the start of June so that is likely to delay the mating process.
