2019 VSH-Italian Queen Bees (marked) ($50) AVAILABLE NOW! Bill's Bees VSH-Italian Queen Bees are ideal bees for an urban setting, for hobby beekeepers, or commercial beekeepers needing to re-queen. They come in a screened cage with attendants, are mated, and ready to lay eggs. Italian bees have been a favorite among beekeepers since they were first introduced to the New World in the 1850’s. They are known to be gentle of temperament, easy to work with, readily build comb, diligent housekeepers which helps them with control of wax moth and resistance to diseases, very prolific, wonderful foragers, excellent honey producers, with less tendency to swarm.
