    Default What type of bees?

    I was given a bee hive last year and I am trying to figure out what type of bees I have. They are very gentle, have lots of brood and making lots of honey.

    They are honey bees. All honey bees in North America are mutts, but those are what are typically called Italians because of their color and the tendencies that lighter colored bees tend to have.
