SUMMER HEAT ADVISORY
FOR QUEEN SHIPMENTS DURING JULY, AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER
WITH TEMPERATURES RISING, THE SUMMER MONTHS FOR SHIPPING LIVE QUEENS IS VERY HIGH RISK AND WE WILL BE UNABLE TO GUARANTEE LIVE DELIVERY.
IT HELPS TO HAVE YOUR QUEENS SHIPPED TO A UPS HUB FOR PICK UP INSTEAD OF A DELIVERY ADDRESS.
R Weaver Buckfast Queen
Our signature queen, the R Weaver Buckfast, is another superior bee available only at R Weaver Apiaries. In addition to the desirable traits of the original Buckfast bee, as developed by Brother Adam, R Weaver Buckfast bees also possess a more open brood pattern, are often darker in color, and are prolific honey producers. The R Weaver Buckfast is also a gentle breed and we at R Weaver Apiaries worked very hard to address any past complaints for aggressive behavior. As a result negative reports have been dramatically reduced, if not eliminated. Read more about Buckfast bees here.

We use our own color marking system and do not use the international color codes.
We use wooden queen cages.
Queens are available from April until the end of September. We ship by UPS 3-DAY SELECT, but for even faster delivery, UPS NEXT DAY and 2-DAY is also available. Contact us if you want to upgrade your shipping method.
For Queen shipments we book orders in advance, send a confirming bill, and require payment in full at the time of booking.
