    Russian hybrid bees

    by Jeremy on May 21, 2024

    We bought 2 swarms of Russian hybrid bees. The bees arrived quickly and were very healthy. After installing them in their new home they went right to work. They drew out 4 new frames in about a week and are working nonstop bringing in nectar and pollen. We will going to Mannlake for any of our bee keeping needs in the future.

    Very happy!

My last hive wanted to sting you to death. This one is a huge relief! Already producing a decent amount of comb
