Re: Temperament of Russian bees
Nearly twenty years ago I worked Russians as part of a research project. The bees were in yards belonging to one of the original members of the Russian Bee Breeders Assn. He always said that they were every bit as gentle as any Italians and in our working that proved true. He said that the hybrids were a different matter. Andů.later on in my own yards, I discovered firsthand the truth in that.
