Saskatraz bees from Mann Lake

Saskatraz bees from Mann Lake was created by Lindsey Simanskas

Hello,
Was wondering if any members have tried the Saskatraz bees that are being sold through Mann lake and what your results where? Or if anyone is ordering/ picking them up this spring? I would be interested in trying them and willing to contribute some gas money.

I received 25 Saskatraz queens from Albert Robertson in Saskatchewan. He's the originator of the stock. Becaise I got them later in July, we used them for requeening. I haven't had them long enough to have an opinion.

The Saskatraz queens from Mann Lake are raised in California by Olivarez. Albert sends breeders to Olivarez.

No, they're all over in NY, and I haven't been there yet.

Mike,
I'd be interested in your continued assessment of the Saskatraz bees. Others would too and I am looking to try them this year. Thanks for any info.

The Vermont Beekeeping Supply in Williamstown has some history about this breed. I know the price just increased from their supplier. Perhaps you could reach out to Sheri for more info. They have them available for order this spring. I believe they have a booth at the farm show as well. Closer than Mann Lakes. Think spring !
