« on: July 19, 2005, 09:43:08 PM »
I looked up on Yahoo or Dogpile I am not forsure which, but this person or company had listed forsale five banded Italians queens about thee months ago, when I went to refind that I can't come up with it. Does anyone know where or who I could come up with the five yellow banded bees or queen?  thanks   Myron

I have never seen five banded Italians being advertised.  Are you sure it wasn't 3 banded?

5 Banded Italians

Sure sounds like the same as Cordovan Italians to me. 5 Banded would include every easily visible abdominal segment. That's just what my Cordovan Italians show.
