We are planning to import and collect packages of Buckfast bees in late May/early June 2014 as we did in 2011, 2012, and in 2013. Bees and queens are of German origin, from the north-west region where the climate is very similar to the Irish and do not need adaptation to specific Irish weather conditions. We will supervise the creation of the units personally.The bees are extremely docile and healthy. Buckfast bees never attack, rarely sting, and are very quiet on the comb.
A state vet will check the packages and certify in accordance with the relevant European legislation that Small hive beetle and Tropilaepaps mite are not present and that the bees come from an area free of infestations of American foulbrood. The bees are kept in quarantine for at least 48 hours in order to comply with the regulations concerning the spread of fireblight.
The packages are between 1.5kg and 2.0kg each (the amount of bees you will find in a mature colony).
Each of the packages is 175 Euro.
