Instrumental Insemination of Queen Bees

Index of information and resources

Instrumental insemination is a great aid to those who are serious bee breeders. There are many who seem to think it is the answer to the problems of poor queen performance that has been seen in the early years of the 21st century, but it isn't.

There are many individuals, or groups of beekeepers, who successfully use instrumental insemination as part of a bee breeding programme.

Dave Cushman was enthusiastic about instrumental insemination and, as a practical man with a fertile mind, designed and made many instrument parts to help cut costs or improve the process, some of which can be accessed here.
