Buckfast Queen Bees 3D.VSH+

Hygienic F1 queen bees for honey production, with varroa and virosis resistance traits. In the last 30 years, damage threshold in a colony passed from 6000 to less than 1000 varroe. There are several causes but certainly the lack of selection and the perpetuity of certain beekeeping practices have heavily affected the isolation of increasingly aggressive varroe and epidemic viruses.

The aim is to select and gradualy introduce traits of varroa resistance (VSH) and hygienic behavior (HYG) in the populations of productive bees, maintaining their genetic variability and good characteristics obtained in years of selection.

The goal is therefore to select and progressively introduce varroa resistance (VSH) and hygienic behaviour (HYG) traits in the populations of productive bees, maintaining their genetic variability and good characteristics obtained in years of selection

The purpose of our work is to bring a positive impact on the daily management of the colonies:

  • a decrease of varroa reproduction rate during the year
  • higher performance on crops thanks to healthier bees and longer over the seasonal period
  • exit from the logic of calendar treatments
  • decrease management costs
  • a balance between productivity and hive health

Saturated mating areas with 3 drone lines (3 Drones) with a high self-hygienic capacity and varroa resistance traits, in which female lines with the same characteristics are rotated, are the guarantee of queen bees that combine a level of heterosis and vitality to the hereritability of varroa resistance traits and a higher tolerance to viruses: a necessary balance for competitive and performing beekeeping in the future.
