Charter Member :: Russian Honeybee Breeders Association  

Tubbs Apiaries, Inc. is a family owned and operated business.  We have been in operation for over 35 years, originally located in the Mississippi Delta and for the last number of years we have operated our business in south Mississippi. We produce honey and pure Russian queens and Russian nucs.

Tubbs Apiaries, Inc. has been a part of the Russian Bee Breeder Program since its inception in 1999 as one of the three original cooperators under the leadership of Dr. Tom Rinderer and staff of the USDA Bee Lab in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Through strict testing and under specific guidelines we are proud to say that as of 2007 the Russian Bee Breeders Association has 18 lines of queens that are not genetically related.

Tubbs Apiaries, Inc is a Certified Russian Queen Breeder.  This distinction is acquired through genetic DNA testing which is performed by the USDA Bee Lab in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Be Careful when purchasing your Russian Queens and Nucs.
The only way to obtain good Russian stock is from a member of the Russian
Honey Bee Breeders Association.
