My first introduction to bees was with packages of Carniolan species, imported from Australia.  I have to say that these are very gentle and lovely bees to keep.  I am coming into my 3rd year in beekeeping and I love the Carniolan.  I have heard that they have a propensity for swarming, but I have not encountered any problems with this so far.  They are always hard at work and never bother much when I work with their hive.  On the other hand, I caught a swarm during my first summer of beekeeping and learned alot that summer about cranky bees.  They must have had some nasty genes for sure.  I kept this swarm through the winter and requeened it with a queen I had raised from my Carniolan colony.  Not to say that this young queen was true to her genetics, because I am sure that possibly some drone from a neighbouring farm may have mated with her mother.  I presume that then we have a mixed breed queen in this manner.  Anyways, the temperament of this swarm changed, much more docile, but still not as sweet as the neighbouring Carniolan colonies.  I lost this swarm hive to the varroa destructor mite, such a nasty infliction.  There was such bad damage to this hive even before I realized what the signs were, too late, but I am prepped and ready.  I have treated my hives with formic acid and will work with the icing sugar next year.  I am endeavouring to never have the mite in such great numbers again.  It actually decimated several of my colonies over time.  Last summer I would see bees crawling around on the ground, some even long ways from their hives, being new to beekeeping, I thought that this was a natural die off, from bees wings fraying from so much work.  Hmmm....so many things to learn about our dear girls.  Regards, Cindi

Gustav, I am sorry, but I do not know what you mean when you said about in summer one Carniolan queen from you.  Are you going to send me one?  I'm sorry, but your statement was confusing.  Regards.  Cindi.

LET-CA, good to resurrect the post.  I may still get a Carniolan queen or two from Slovenia from Gustov, that would be very cool.  Best of a beautiful day, great life, may the sun shine and good health. Cindi

Hey Beemaster,

When are you going overseas to meet all these members that live outside of the US?
I am still waiting for my passport, but I will be in Taz in October.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
