Dark bee colony on Zander – brought to a point
If you choose our Dark Bee for beekeeping, you choose the original breed of bee in our country and in most parts of Europe. Their advantage of robustness is not only very useful in cold weather for successful overwintering of your Dark Bee colonies - the Dark Bee, originally from Germany, is also said to cope much better with the Varroa mite and can fight it almost on its own.
With our dark bee colonies you will receive a good quantity of bees, divided into 5 frames consisting of 3 brood frames, 1 forage frame and a frame in expansion. Before shipment, we check all dark bee Zander colonies for health. Upon request, we will provide a health certificate with the shipment of bees upon receipt of the bees. The shipment in specially designed shipping boxes is done via overnight express, so that the animals are exposed to as little stress as possible. You will receive high quality dark bees directly from the beekeeper who specializes in them.
Dark bee colony on Zander sized frames - hard-working and high-yielding bees
The Scandinavian apis mellifera mellifera has proven to be very successful, especially in tracts in average to bad weather, and is much better and more agile in this area than the conventional Buckfast bee. This means that in bad to moderate weather it builds out the frames properly and brings in more honey than the already resident breeds and thus scores well in honey production. Our dark queen bee has been tested by us and in our opinion is also somewhat more lively than the dark queen from Finland, but at the same time more resistant. We call for caution on the subject of "meekness": in our opinion, a true northern bee will never reach the meekness of a bred Carnica or Buckfast, because then it would probably make losses in other traits. We can state this with certainty from our own experience as well as by questioning several pure-breeding beekeepers (apis mellifera). However, in case of a good yield and normal temperatures, we can say that Scandinavian queens and worker bees as well as their offspring are quite peaceful and cause less trouble. In thundery weather, however, we advise against opening or working the dark colonies.
- Very productive, especially even in moderate to bad weather
- More lively than their colleague from Finland
- Very robust and resistant
