ABOUT OWA SELECT HYBRID WILD SURVIVOR QUEENS

Our queens owe their exceptional hardiness to careful preservation of pioneer stock originally introduced to the remote Olympic Peninsula of Washington State by early settlers over a century ago. These unmanaged feral colonies had been thriving in continual isolation, adapting to the harsh fungus-rich environment of the world′s largest temperate rainforest.

While we remain committed to sustainable stock selection, under increasing pressure from the mite/virus complex, in 2018 we did began winter broodless application of oxalic acid sublimation.

Decades of natural selection, in these cool damp conditions have created resilient survivors with excellent mite-resistance, hygienic behavior, and remarkable nosema tolerance, associated with their extreme pollen hoarding behavior

All our queens are grafted from carefully-selected breeder stock, naturally-mated to our Wild Survivor Drone lines which are maintained to be the predominant genetics of our closed-population mating yards.
By regular inclusion of VSH/SMR and USDA Primorsky Russian stock acquired from proven reliable sources, we consistently produce a hardy 3-way cross that exhibits the most desirable traits of each.
