Island Bees specializes in producing healthy honey bees and queens, which are capable of surviving and even thriving despite the many challenges in the current beekeeping environment.  My genetic selection process focuses on a number of traits, but particularly on a colonies natural resistance to varroa mites and rapid buildup.  I believe that if a queen can contribute to a strong colony with low mite counts most of the other challenges are significantly less challenging.

We operate from Saltspring Island, British Columbia, but queen and nuc sales are available to all of western Canada.
