The following is a list of participants that maintain Instrumentally Inseminate Breeder Queens from reputable queen breeders or genetically superior open-mated queens that are kept for the express purpose of generating new queen bees for distribution within the Commonwealth of Virginia to enhance the gene pool of our local stock.  We will begin UBO testing our breeder stock in 2024. Stay tuned for more information on buying UBO proven queens and daughter stock.
