Welcome To Honey Bee Genetics

We created this site to share our love for Honey Bees and to sell our stock, directly to hobby and commercial beekeepers across the United States and Europe.

Located in California, we have been selecting for disease resistance for twenty years. We were pioneers in this technique and today, we are continuing to work towards the goal of producing healthy bees.

Do you need to re-queen?

If you currently have colonies, re-queening with our queens will improve your hives that are harmed by disease or non-productive queens.
