Hygienic Italian, Carniolan, & Saskastraz

We receive weekly deliveries of Hygienic Italian, Carniolan, & Saskastraz queens from April to September from Olivarez Honey Bee, Inc.

2020 Hygienic Italian, Carniolan, & Saskastraz Prices:

Italian & Carniolan = $38.00 plus WV 6% Sales Tax,  Saskastraz = $40.00 plus WV 6% Sales Tax

Marking Fee: $3.00

Online ordering is not available. We cannot accept payments over the phone. We accept credit cards at our shop & we can also email you a Paypal invoice. Absolutely no holds on queens unless you’ve pre-paid & you must pick your order up immediately when the queens arrive. Queens should be installed ASAP.


Occasionally, we will place orders for Buckfast queens from Ferguson Apiaries in Canada if there is enough pre-orders. We will need advance notice & payment for your order. We will place an order with Ferguson when 10 or more queens with payment are received. Due to import, shipping, & inspection fees, it is not cost efficient for any parties involved for us to order 10 or less queens.

Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds

If available from breeders, we will place orders for Mite Maulers, Purdue Ankle-biters, and other specialty breeds. Please contact us for availability.
