The breeding of our queen bees is under constant supervision of the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia. We also cooperate with the institutes in Germany and the Czech Republic. We regularly measure the cubital index on queen bees and perform PIN testing (testing their cleaning capabilities) and testing through their offspring (offspring testing of queen bees).
We use several types of mating hives of different sizes and can adapt to the wishes of the customer. The most important among of them is Pislak’s mating hive, designed by Janko Pislak specifically for Apis Mellifera Carnica, which has proved to be extremely successful.
The orders that we get from around the world are a reflection of the quality of our queen bees. We mostly get orders from numerous European countries, Middle East and Far East.
We are proud of many awards and prizes that encourage us to keep on working for better and better quality of our bee queens.
