Today, it was warm enough for me to check on the girls. After some spring cleaning, I got to noticing that they looked different. Last summer, I requeened with an O.W. Carni. These bees are, perhaps, a color phase? The thorax and top third of the abdomen are what I would call chestnut, followed by yellow, then black. They have 4 black bands across their abdomen. They are quite beautiful, regardless. And their temperment is more docile than I expected. Don't get me wrong, they head butt me, but they didn't come out in droves, like the ones last year did.

Any ideas? I'll try to get pics

People ask me what kind of bees I keep. I always reply, 'my bees have no pedigree'. It usually gets a smile...and is also true.
