Our Bees

GET BACK TO THE BASICS.... ENJOY BEING A BEEKEEPER, NOT AN EXTERMINATOR.
CHOOSE BEES THAT DON'T NEED CHEMICALS TO SURVIVE.

The message is simple. Our dream of selecting and propagating bees with genetic tolerance or resistance to honey bee pathogens is a reality. Our queens will buy you peace of mind and enable chemical free or "organic" beekeeping. You will not need to constantly monitor mite levels, and repeatedly dispense expensive and/or dangerous chemical treatments to keep your hives alive. Colonies headed by Bee Weaver queens will thrive despite Varroa mites and viruses, while hives with queens from other sources will usually die without continuous and aggressive chemical treatment.

Bee Weaver queens will allow you to relax and enjoy the benefits of organic beekeeping today. Kick the habit of constantly worrying about mite levels, and applying various chemicals to combat mites. Harvest organically produced honey and produce wax free of harmful chemical residues by using bees that beat mites naturally. You will be glad you did.

BeeWeaver Breeds

For more than a century, honey has been running through 5 generations of the Weaver family veins. What began as side job for Binford's grandparents, Florence and Zachariah, after acquiring ten bee colonies as a wedding gift in 1888, has become a passion and livelihood for the four generations of Weavers that followed. It was Binford's father Roy's ambition and determination that set the stage for the Weaver name to be synonymous with quality bees and honey production. After learning the basics of beekeeping, Roy went on a quest for knowledge to learn more about the trade. On his first day the boss gave him two old mules, a wagon and an old farmer as a helper, and told him to extract a honey crop. Select to learn more about the BeeWeaver Beginnings.

Buckfast Lineage
& BeeWeaver Queens

At the 1926 Texas Beekeepers Assocation meeting, Roy Weaver, Sr., was approached bt T.W. Burleson, (founder of Burleson's Honey), and H.E. Graham, (a large early package bee producer). They requested at least 1,000 queens a year from Roy; that was, if he could produce them. And so the challenge began, and Weaver Apiaries was born.
