Buy queen bees - The Carnica queen for gentleness and high yields
To ensure the continuity of your bee colony, a queen is indispensable. The quality of the breeding plays a role, but also the breed itself should be considered in the decision. The Carnica queen is characterized by a particularly high gentleness, which is also reflected in the offspring. At the same time the animals from the Carnica series are very swarm productive, efficient and high-yielding - and thus ideally suited for offspring. If you order a queen bee from us in the Bienenzucht Profi Online-Shop, you have the choice between stand mated and stand mated Specimens. For an optimal overview we mark the queens still before the dispatch with the current year color - so you always know in which year the queen bee was used. In our online shop for beekeepers and bee professionals you can be sure to purchase pure-bred Carnica queens, whose breed purity has been strictly checked in advance. Thus the preservation of the individual character traits is also secured with the offspring.
Before each shipment, a detailed health check of the individual animals takes place. On request, we also enclose a comprehensive health certificate with each order. For shipping we use a special feeder cage with some accompanying bees, in which the animals are provided with sufficient food and nutrition. The Carnica queen bee can easily be integrated into a colony, provided that no (unmatted) queen has been available so far and all replenishment cells have been removed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Bienenzucht Profiversand.
Buckfast queen - the vital, gentle alternative
In addition to the Carnica bee, the Buckfast bee has also been able to spread more and more in Germany and Europe in recent years. The hybrid bee, which was bred from several different species, has almost as gentle character traits as the Carnica bee - but at the same time it is also significantly more vital. In terms of yield, diligence and swarming inertia, both species are in no way inferior to each other. Due to these numerous, positive characteristics we also offer the classic Buckfast queen for sale in our online shop, which you can also choose from stand mated or mated can acquire. Before each queen bee sale, the animals are thoroughly checked for health. Should this be desired, we will gladly enclose a corresponding health certificate with the package. Each queen bee that you order in our Beekeeping Professional Online Shop is marked in advance with the current year's colour and can thus be clearly identified. As we only offer Buckfast purebred queens from artificial insemination, you can be sure of the promised character traits. You will receive a queen that is also ideal for breeding in your own colony.
For the shipping of our Buckfast queens, we also use special cages, in which there is sufficient food and water in addition to a few accompanying bees.
Stand mated or mated at the hive - Ordering queens
In our beekeeping professional online shop you not only have the choice between Carnica queen bees or Buckfast queen bees, you can also freely choose whether the animals are delivered to you stand-mated or mated. For this, of course, a precise knowledge of the difference is essential. With stand mated queens the queens are mated on their own stand by other drones, so that an exact control and breeding selection is hardly possible. In contrast, queens mated at a mating site are deliberately mated with drones of the same bee breed so that absolute breeding purity is maintained. It is of course up to you which type of mating you decide on. Please note, however, that stand mated queens of the Buckfast or Carnica breed can only be shipped to you from about the second half of April, while queens mated at the mating site are already ready for shipment at the beginning of the month, weather conditions permitting. If you have more specific questions about the different types of mating, you can of course contact our team of professional beekeepers who will be happy to advise you.

That is why we use specially designed boxes for queen bee sales and shipping, in which the queen bees can be transported safely and securely. In addition, this box contains a few accompanying bees as well as sufficient food to make the shipping process as pleasant as possible for the queen bee. We ship our queen bees exclusively by express delivery, which will be announced to you a few days before the shipment. We ask that you be there on the day of delivery to receive the package. Before each shipment, we check our queen bees once again carefully for their health and include a comprehensive health certificate with the delivery if requested.

Buying queen bees - how to integrate the queen bee into your colony
You already have a bee colony and you are only missing a queen, which provides for its cohesion and secures the continuance? With us in the online shop of Bienenzucht Profi you can buy queen bees, which correspond to a particularly high pure breeding quality and profit from an above-average health. In order for the addition to work in the existing state, you should ensure in advance that no queen or its offspring are present in the hive. Prior to addition, any queen present should be removed approximately 9 days early, as well as any re-creation cells. To integrate the queen into the existing colony, you can simply use the addition cage in which the queen bee will be shipped to you. In this closed cage you should hang the queen in the hive for about 48 hours. We recommend that you place the queen in the cage in the evening, as at this time all the bees are "at home" and as quiet as possible. After these two days of acclimatisation, open the cage so that the colony can welcome the queen.
If you have any further questions about buying queen bees or need more information about setting them in, you can of course contact our team of professional beekeepers who can advise you with years of expertise and experience. We are available by phone as well as by mail - just contact us!
