Can get imports if that's what you are after?

I think imports are scarce due to the coronavirus.
Some overseas bee breeders are having problems shipping them into the UK

My first cells are due to hatch Sunday so would suggest it’s to early for most. If any have them though google exmoor bees for U.K. reared. If not try bs honey who the last time I checked had some both are recommended. Ian

Just had a Buckfast Queen delivered today from BS Honeybees sent on Wednesday, so can definitely recommend them.

How long is a piece of string
My first batch of Queens hatch today, Apidea and Nucs made up. Will start my next grafts tomorrow as it rained hard this afternoon here.

Do you mean ‘emerging’, not ‘hatch’? Will be another several days before they mate, start laying?

There may be other alternatives for the OP, but without sufficient details, they cannot be explored.
