David Williams has some AMM virgin queens for sale for £15 each to WVBKA members. These are British black bees and by having them you will help to improve local stocks of bees by ensuring that next years drones from these queens will be British black bees. Buying queens is a quick way to improve your stock by replacing an older queen in a hive or setting up a nuc using some of your existing brood. David is a members of BIBBA and their policy is to use native bees rather than importing exotic races of bees. There may be some open mated AMM queens available in a couple of weeks time.
