2017 Queen season!  

Our queen inventory and shipping dates are updated weekly at the base of this page.

Call-ahead queen pickup is usually possible even on non-shipping days at: 1090 Hwy 1 N, Mount Vernon, IA 52314: 319 430 3514


Honey and wax are always always available at our main website: www.eberthoney.com



At Ebert Honey we distribute queens for beekeepers across America.  We normally only have Carniolans in stock.  Carniolans are excellent producers, winter hardy, and gentle.  Sometimes we have Italians available.  Italians are gentle and productive as well, but they often require much more feeding in the fall due to prolonged brood rearing.


Nucs are for pickup only.  Nuc orders made at www.ebertqueens.com are only for our location at 1090 Hwy 1 N, Mount Vernon, IA (not Lynnville).  The date of availability listed at the time of purchase is approximate--we have to monitor their maturation and arrange a specific pickup time when they are ready. 

If you have any questions or problems, please use the "contact us" link.  Email is the best way to get a prompt reply.

REMEMBER: Please provide a phone number with your order.  It really helps USPS  notify you when your queens arrive.

Please check back frequently because we are constantly updating our inventory.

Happy Beekeeping!  See our adventures with bees at Adam's Bee Blog!
