    Default Help identifying race of bee

    Anybody recognize the race of bee I found (Buckfast, Italian, Carniolan, etc). The answer is probably "mixed mutt", but I wanted to try anyway.

    Scroll down, I took several pics, some of them I cropped and zoomed in (and are blurry)

    I don't have any pics of the queen. Cant get into the hive until next spring.

    I'm with DavidZ, Mutts. My Italians were much more golden-tan, no black.
    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.
