Pros Cons
*Earlier morning forager *Swarns easily when no expansion room is
*Forages on colder and wetter days than most other bees *If pollen is scarce brood rearing greatly diminishes
*Overtwinters well on small stores, as queen stops laying in the fall *Low ability to thrive in hot summer weather
*Rapid build up in early spring   
*Exceptionally gentle and easy to work   
*Brood production is dependant on availability of supplies, hence more food more forages, less food, smaller population   
*Less susceptible to brood disease   
*Creates less brace & burr comb
