Queen Bees - Mated Marked - Rottnest Daughters

Beewise Marked Mated Bee Queens are Rottnest daughters - which are carefully bred and mated under controlled conditions to ensure they are:

  • Excellent foragers
  • Gentle
  • Superb comb builders
  • Clean/excellent housekeepers, & hence less prone to disease
  • Use little propolis
  • Reduced tendency to swarm
  • Tendency to collect flower honey rather than honey dew

For top performance, Queens should be replaced if:

  1. Your beehive is aggressive
  2. The beehive is performing poorly, e.g. disease, poor laying pattern
  3. The queen is more than two years old

THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR HIVE IS TOTALLY DEPENDENT UPON THE QUALITY OF YOUR QUEEN

Swarm Boss Premium Bee Lure 50mL

Swarm Boss Premium Bee Lure is a complex formulation containing various terpenoids and other organic compounds, designed to mimic Nasonov pheromone.

Set Swarm Traps as follows:

  • Select a clean used 8-frame or 10-frame brood box with a non-vented / solid base.  The trap needs to be ca 40L – Nuc boxes are too small. 
  • Apply 2 single sprays of Beewise Swarm Boss to the underside of the cover; and 2 single sprays of Beewise Swarm Boss on the base adjacent to the entrance.  Don’t over-do the sprays as more is not better.
  • Insert new frames with wax foundation.  If you use developed honey comb you are likely to attract wax moths.
  • Reduce entrance to about 10cm.
  • Place box at a location conspicuous to the bees at height of about 2 metres.
  • Lift the rear of the hive 1cm to ensure no water ingress.
  • Sniff the Swam Trap every 2 weeks and if Beewise Swarm Boss cannot be detected by nose, reapply as above.
