Buckfast Royal Cells VSH+

The use of selected royal cells is functional to a genetic improvement spread not only by female line but also by drone line.

This offers the opportunity to prepare colonies as a drone line to saturate their mating stations and add in their beeyards varroa resistance and hygienic behavior traits thanks to normal controlled natural mating.

In order to introduce varroa resistance traits, Tenuta Ritiro proposes to its partners the use of royal cells from lines with a high level of transmissibility in the offspring of HYG+, SMR, Decapping. Once mated in their own area (even not isolated),these F1 queen bees will transmit on drone line their mother’s genetic heritage, thus increasing the health of the bees in subsequent matings.

The increase of health traits must be constantly measured with the Pin-Test.
