I've always heard that Russians are gentler than Italians? Now I'm hearing the opposite? Which is it?
Also, I've understood that if workers are collecting pollen, they have brood. Is this right?

I've had Russians since 2007. I think they're as gentle as Italians -- I couldn't tell the difference between their behavior if I didn't label my hives.

About pollen: Colonies won't really kick up brood production if there's no pollen available.

My Russians are not as tempermental as my italians. My MHI's don't like cloudy days..lol and are more irritable.
