Product Description

The Russian Hybrid Bee is commonly known to be more mite resistant than the Italian bee. Russian Hybrids are also docile like the Italian.

This package includes Italian bees and a laying marked Russian queen.

    Strengths of Russian honey bees:
  • Excellent at wintering (small cluster needs less food)
  • Resistant to varroa and tracheal mites
  • High honey yield (same or better than Italian bees)
  • Can rear massive amounts of brood in short times to closely follow times of nectar and pollen flow
  • Constantly maintain several supersedure queen cells for immediate queen replacement if the hive loses its current queen
