I thought I might mention that Cordovan is not a strain of bee, just a genetic color variation that can be bred into any strain/race of honeybee. Most often it is seen in Italian honeybees because it is at its most dramatic effect with the lighter colored Italians. With darker colored races it is not as dramatic.

I really enjoy the bright coloration of my Italian Cordovan colonies.
