Tiger Breeder Queen


Tigers are a hybrid line that has been specially selected for their defense against Small Hive Beetles. Tigers are less deterred by the slime created by SHB larvae, thus they clean out the larvae and slime as soon as larvae begin to hatch. They are the first line of queens offering a resistance to SHB. Although NO colony can be "beetle-proof", the Tigers are the first step in using genetics to combat the pests as they spread across our nation.
