    Default first swarm ID

    I'm new and just caught my first swarm last week. I have two hives of carniolans and the swarm bees are way different. They have drawn out 8 bars in 7 days. Any idea on the breed? Thanks.Bees 7.1.12 079.jpg

    Depending on where they came from, best bet is muts. Probably a tree variety of bees, the best kind. Add to your bee gene pool that way!

    A mix of something, but looks mostly Italian.
