The Midnight Hybrid is a cross between two strains of bees,
they are reported to be a very gentle bee, but slow to
build up in spring.

Michael Bush:
I'm not aware of anyone selling them.  A lot of people ask about them.  York used to do the midnites and starlines.  I think Dadant started the program.  Is that link the new owners of York?  The midnites are usually very nice bees.  But all F1 hybrids tend to not be as good in the second generation.  They are an F1 cross of a strain of Caucasian and a strain of Carniolan.

If midnight is such a hybrid it quite impossible to get same level daughters. Daughter mate with 16 drones at the distance of 1-2 miles. But if queen is good it is worth to buy after 2 years usage.

When I raise queens I take only 1. generation what ever they are.

In Argentina they use crossing Caucasian and Italian.
