- Instrumental Insemination can be carried out by anyone it is a fairly simple process all that is needed is good initial tuition and practice.
- It can replace a percentage of your traditional mating Nucs.
- During seasons of bad weather Queen Production can carry on.
The need for Queen Producers to use and benefit from Instrumental Insemination has grown enormously over the last few years. Too many seasons now Queens have been poorly mated only to find that they are superseded or fail early.
With Instrumental Insemination you can guarantee that the Queens receives the correct amount of semen and will head successful Honey producing colonies of Bees.
Studies have found that Instrumentally Inseminated Queen preform equally or better than naturally mated Queens.
You can also breed in traits that you are looking for such as Varroa Hygiene or gentleness.
Correctly trained and practiced you can inseminate up to 10 Queens per hour working an 8 hour day you have the possibility of producing around 80 mated Queens per day. This would give you an enormous saving on mating Nucs and the production of bees to fill them and easily justify any investment in time and equipment needed.
Many large scale Queen Producers from every continent on earth have visited us over the last few years we have been offering training and we are being told that they are now producing many hundreds of the queens using Instrumental Insemination.
- Properly Mated Queens
- Production Costs lowered
- Ability to produce Varroa Hygienic Bees
- Breeder Queen Production
- Ability to boost production
- To maintain strain purity
Demand for this course will be high so book early
