    Southern Bred Russian Hybrid Queen

    by Ian Snair on Jun 04, 2023

    So far so good.They definitely make multiple queen cells which is good for me expanding my apiary, bad for those who do not do regular inspections. Drone population is high. Brood count is great I recommend 2 deep chambers. No hive beatles or varroa yet and guard bees seek out threats at further distance from entrance compared to Italian carniolin colonies. Workable hive with tendencies to protect brood and make tight clusters making it difficult for queen spotting. Colony takes advantage of empty space making drone brood and queen cells wherever space is available. Metal queen excluder ineffective keeping brood below without empty space below (possible 2 queen situation) They are first out and last to return in my apiary flying in cooler temps through light rain. Overall These genetics require more work to inspect/spot queens, manage swarm control, protective gear, positives are less pests, Queen insurance , durability and ability to forage longer and in inclement weather. 2023 no sugar feed strong flows Haven't been through dearth yet.
