Queen Honey Bee Problems

Queens are not living as long as they should - why?

Many beekeepers are experiencing problems with queens that have only appeared since the turn of the 21st century. These problems include:-

  1. Young queens failing.
  2. Young queens being superseded.
  3. Queens "disappearing".

There are other problems that are possibly related.

Many beekeepers, even experienced ones, are not recognising the problems. Check out the buttons on the left for help and advice.
