BEEWEAVER BREED

  • BeeWeaver honeybees are hardy, productive, mite tolerant and virus resistant stock.
  • BeeWeaver honeybees respond quickly to pollen and nectar resource changes, which means quick growth in the spring, big honey crops, and low winter mortality. 
  • BeeWeaver bees thrive in a variety of environmental conditions and climates, and with little need for extensive management interventions often required by other bees. 
  • BeeWeaver honeybees will not succumb to Varroa mite infestation or honey bee virus infections. In fact, there is no need to apply chemical treatments to suppress Varroa destructor infestation in hives headed by Bee Weaver queens. 
  • BeeWeaver colonies will build strong populations, produce big honey crops and naturally minimize Varroa mite population growth. 
  • BeeWeaver honeybees detect and eliminate infested pupae - killing subsequent generations of immature mites in the process. 
  • BeeWeaver bees also groom each other and chew mites in the process, leaving mites damaged, susceptible to desiccation or dead. 
  • BeeWeaver bees also mount a distinct immunological response to viral challenge, enabling them to resist infection by several deadly viruses that Varroa mites vector. 
  • BeeWeaver bees increase the expression of some immune genes and reduce the expression of others in response to viral pathogens. The genes upregulated in Bee Weaver bees exposed to viruses are usually downregulated in other strains, and the immune genes downregulated in Bee Weaver bees infected by viruses are usually upregulated in other strains exposed to viruses

    The only Queens I use in my apiary.

    Posted by Frederick J. Dunn on 10th Jan 2019

    I've been stocking my apiary for many years exclusively with Weaver Queens. Every time I get inspected by our State Inspector, he is very suspicious when I claim I don't treat for mites, when he and I search for mites in my hive and find one, maybe two that are still alive and kicking. These bees are very hygienic and do a great job of holding their own in the company of varroa without any treatment. I focus on quality forage, excellent hive construction and good apiary placement. Beyond that, the rest is up to my bees and they also winter very well here in Pennsylvania. I do allow them to swarm and mix with local feral colonies and re-queen a portion of my hives each spring for that added genetic boost. I'm sold on Weaver Bees and Use nothing else. Thank YOU Weaver family, for caring enough to work with sustainable honeybee genetics that are exactly what I wanted. Five Stars!
