We offer instrumental insemination training and development. All we ask is you have virgin queens, drones and a microscope that can be put on a monitor so we can help, we specialise in troubleshooting so just ask with anything you need help with.
We have the most amazing inseminated queen bees, we also have semen available in season. We have many pedigrees available in Buckfast selected breeders and Carnicas from beebreed.eu. Pedigrees are available on request.
We incorporate the very best engineers to bring the highest quality instrumental insemination equipment. The use of stainless steel in our equipment, our high capacity Harbo which is so easy to use, and innovations like the semen collection station and left handed device
Controlled mating is essential to achieve the goals of any breeding program. Honey bees present a unique challenge because queens mate in flight with around 15 to 20 drones and therefore mating is difficult to control. Instrumental insemination otherwise known as Artificial insemination provides a valuable tool to control the random mating process and is essential for bee breeding and research requiring specific crosses, single drone insemination with Varroa sensitive Hygiene, VSH, hygienic bees and, special traits like higher production or/and gentleness. We can keep pedigree lines, pure breeds of bees and instrumental insemination is essential for selection. My reason for starting insemination was poor weather for mating in the UK and substantially increasing the number of weeks per year we can produce mated queen bees. At our apiaries in Portugal, we rear queens for 10 months a year and we sell our pedigree bees most of the year. Our kits and equipment are constantly improving and our training is based on gathering many years worth of knowledge of insemination from many different queen bee inseminators. We offer a free setup Zoom/Whatsapp setup session for all our customers with new equipment
