Carniolan honeybees are known for their great gathering zeal and high honey production. They are exceptionally gentle and easier to work with than other, more aggressive breeds. This is very important because many beekeepers raise honeybees in the vicinity of their homes, where aggressive bees could cause trouble if they swarm. We highly recommend this breed for backyard beekeepers. The Carniolan is also known for its resistance to illnesses. It overwinters well and takes advantage of early nectar flow, producing honey early in the season; an excellent choice for the Bay Area!
*Please note that we do not delivery to peoples homes.
