Mating stations allow for controlled natural matings with selected drones deriving from honey bee queens that were tested according to the performance testing and breeding value estimation program coordinated by the Austrian beekeepers federation Biene Österreich.

Here you can find a short overview of mating stations in Austria. For more information please contact the administrators of the respective mating stations.

For the estimated breeding values (EBV) of the different traits, the following abbreviations are used: Honey productivity (HO), defensive behaviour (DE), calmness on comb (CA), swarming behaviour (SW)
