I think they are referring to the Cordovan honeybee. they are a bright yellow most of the time and seem to have a red or golden to light brown tint to the upper part. Would you please post who the beeman is who is selling these beauty's in Mississippi.

Hi Mark
Good to see you on here, i was thinking spectret was talking about McCary but when talking to him he never mentioned being
Redheaded. Mark when do you get your Cordovans from Mc Cary mine are coming April 23th. I pray our weather here will warm up enough for them to start on a good footing. I never heard of Russells Apiaries does he also have the Cordovans we like?
Respectifully yours

Hi Spectret,
These beepeople in Mississippi sure do like their redheads don't they?
