I have 4 hives 3 Italian, and 1 feral swarm I caught (very dark, the queen is almost solid black) . Anyway I want to add another hive or two in the spring. I am thinking of Russians just to have something different.
Two questions. Are they gentle?I hear so many different opinions. I don't like to wear even a Vail. I do not have to with the girls I have now.
Will they cross breed and not make a difference anyway?
