I posted this as well in the consumer reports but wanted to put in General as well since many people are asking about Russians on here.

Just an update on my Dwight Porter Russian Hive.

Picked this Nuc up around the last week in May and put the 5 frames in a 10 frame when I arrived. Checked them Yesterday at about a month in my yard they have one full deep of drawn comb with nectar lots of brood and pollen.

The most amazing thing so far with these is that I put a 10 frame medium on Saturday morning. They already have 5 frames front and back in 4 days filled out and filling cells with nectar. I've only fed these bees once in a month and gave them about 5 lbs at that time.

I'm very impressed with these bees.
