New to this site. Love bees, always have, Followed once a 10 week course back in the Netherlands to find out I’m allergic to bee stings..
Just an hour ago an overseas frien was talking about exporting bee queens to NZ. Giving the protective nature and regulations in NZ I thought of asking the question first prior to getting back to my friend with a wrong answer.
Appreciate any information you can provide.
thanks

No chance of bringing queens into NZ. Or any bee products.
As Trevor says the import restrictions on bees and associated products would make it extremely difficult if not impossible to do.
New Zealand has prohibited the import of live bees since about 1960 to protect its disease-free status.
