Bee Scientifics

Breeder Queens

Bee Scientifics is working with Laurie Dewar and Thomas Harding (Queensland) to offer artificially inseminated breeder queens reared from the breeding lines of DGQueens (Dewar Gerdts Queens, formally Dewar Apiaries).

We select for honey production, disease resistance (including hygienic behaviour), and temperament.  Production colonies are evaluated in commercial beekeeping operations in Queensland, Victoria, and Tasmania.  Genetics from the best performing colonies are used to perpetuate our breeding lines.

These queens are from superior breeding stock with an excellent reputation in the Australian apicultural industry, honed in over the last 40 years.

We only have a limited number of AI breeder queens. Please contact us to discuss ordering options.  Italian and Carniolian races available.
