Queens are open-air mated. Purebred Russian bees do not build their colony populations until pollen is available, and they shut down brood rearing when pollen is scarce. This characteristic makes them suitable in areas where the main honey and pollen flows occur later in the year. They are more resistant to varroa mites.
