Northern California Park Italian Queens from Stayer's Quality Queens


SQQ is committed to producing high quality Italian Queens. They strive to produce high quality queens that carry traits of gentleness, early build-up, good brood pattern and honey production. Hygienic behavior is also an important trait in any breeder Queen. In the early spring we hand select the drone mother colonies that possess these traits and installs drone comb to ensure there is an abundance of healthy, mature drones.


We guarantee your queens to be alive at the time of shipping or pickup. To the best of our knowledge, these queens will be in good health. Once the queens leave our care we cannot guarantee their acceptance into your hive, their performance, or their health. Due to many factors that influence queen health and introduction success, including unforeseen complications during shipping or individual beekeeping practices, we do not guarantee our queens or provide refunds once the queens have left our care. Please ensure that you have the skills and knowledge needed to handle and care for queen bees.

Important notes regarding queens:

  • Due to limited quantities being available, orders are not reserved until paid in full.

  • We will notify purchasers via the email address provided when the queens arrive in Calgary. Generally, they will arrive before noon on Thursday, but calling ahead is advised.
