Honey bee eggs can be sent through the post by normal mail.
Albert Knight sent some to Arthur Johnson on the Isle of Wight some
One of the problems with introducing bee eggs into another
colony is that they are often eaten, especially if the colony is
queen-right. These losses are most likely from the fact of them being
strange eggs from a colony with different racial characteristics, than
any effects of transport through the post.
Arthur Johnson put the eggs he received into an incubator to
get them up to hive temperature first, then placed them in a queenless
nucleus, this was successful.
