LOCAL PICKUP ONLY Carniolan: Carniolan bees are very gentle & easy to work with. They are most likely to forage on cold & wet days – they rank as 1 of the best for overwintering. As an added bonus, the Carniolan bees build up their numbers quickly in the spring. If you are new to beekeeping, you should consider Carniolan bees. Although they are a bit more likely to swarm compared to Italian bees, they are best suited for cold & wet climates, and they are very capable of fending off parasites & diseases!
