About Carniolan Bees

There are approximately 3,000 to 4,000 honey bees per pound so this 3-pound package includes 9,000 to 12,000 honey bees as well as one marked queen.

Carniolan honey bees, Apis mellifera carnica, are the 2nd most popular type of honey bees.  They are native to Slovenia, souther Austria, and parts of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.

Carniolan honey bees are gentle, typically non-aggressive, and quickly adapt to changes in their environment. They overwinter well with smaller numbers and do a great job at conserving winter honey stores. Some beekeepers have found Carniolan bees better to handle brood disease.

Carnolian honey bees are very adept at adjusting worker population to nectar availability.  They meet periods of high nectar with higher worker populations and also store large quantities of honey and pollen during these periods.
