italians and russians. Interesting observation at this point: the italians come out readily and in large numbers at amazingly low temps, even when it snowing;  the russians lay low - no activity at all - until it's sunny and close to 50F. I have frequently worried that they were dead but they are healthy and numerous.

Carnolian packages imported from Australia last year, and a mystery hive with either italians or feral bees....both are very gentle.  I haven't had to suit up much, and can lie in front (to the side) of the hive and watch them.  I usually wear my veil and gloves because Im new to this but honestly don't need it unless I am swapping frames around.  So far I have been very pleased with the genetics.

When they are carniolans, watch out, they are eager to swarm if they have too tight or hey have honey flow . They are really centle. Color is grey-black.
