I’m a Connecticut beekeeper now! Installed two packages about three weeks ago. Fun! I have two new breeds of bees – Carniolan and Saskatraz. Most hives in American are the Italian species. I figured it would be fun to try new varieties to see how they perform. Carniolan bees are known to have a strong build up of bees going into winter, although they start slower in the spring. Saskatraz are a relatively new variety of bees bred to withstand some of the ailments that have been decimating colonies. Even though itís just been a few weeks, Iím seeing differences between the hives already. More on that later.
