The characteristics that differ among the various races of honey bees are subtle, but can make a difference in the success or failure of your hive.


Carniolan bees are dark with brown spots or bands on their abdomen. 


Carniolan bees originally came from the Austrian Alps, Yugoslavia, and Danube Valley regions. They can be found across much of Eastern Europe including Hungary, Croatia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina


Carniolan bees are incredibly gentle and easy to work with. Due to their region of origin, they are more likely to forage on cold, wet days than other types of bees and rank among the best for overwintering and surviving the winter.
