THE WORLD OF BEES
We keep Carniolan honey bees in our hives. They are mild tempered, and easy to work with. These bees originate from Eastern Europe (Austrian Alps, Yugoslavia, and Danube Valley regions).
Nectar and Pollen are foraged to make honey.
Due to their region of origin, they are more likely to forage on cold, wet days than other types of bees. They also build up their numbers rapidly in the spring.
Queen and Hive
Carniolan bees tend to be quite capable of fending off parasites and show good resistance to some diseases.
