Queen Bees Ligustica

Apicoltura LaTerza is a company specialized in the sale of ligustic queen Bees, subspecies of the honeybee, native to Italy.

All beekeepers appreciate the Ligustic queen bee for its adaptability to most climates, from temperate to subtropical: Ligustic bees can therefore also withstand the particularly humid springs and harsh winters of northern Europe. In winter, in this regard, the ligustic queens bees consume significant amounts of reserves. In autumn, the trend towards brooding clearly contributes to the increase in honey consumption.


Generally speaking, the abdomen is brown in color and has golden stripes. The body is slightly more tapered than the Apis mellifera mellifera, in turn known as the German wasp and characterized by greater aggressiveness, so much so that many beekeepers find it very complex to work with their colonies. The ligustic queens beesMoreover, they have shorter hairs than the latter, a cubital index between 2,2 and 2,5 and finally a length of the ligula (ndr the union of the glossae, essential for the nectar collection) variable between 6,3 and 6,6 mm.

But what made the bees queens particularly industrial resides in characters such as a brood always compact and never excessive, the half-moon arrangement on the combs, the resistance to diseases, the docility and the balanced ratio between stock, brood and adult bees.

The ligustic Queen Bees that we market in parcels of 1.5 kg are free from diseases, as demonstrated by the health certificate, delivered to all our customers.
