Apis mellifera carnica
The Carniolan honey bee is a bee bred by humans. It is gentle and very productive. It can be more effort for beekeepers compared to other subspecies of Apis mellifera because this species is prone to swarming, which can reduce the size of the colony.
Order: Hymenoptera; family: Apidae
Pollen and nectar
In the spring the brood of the Carniolan honey bee rapidly expands, even though only a small colony overwinters as a cluster of bees.
