OHB Italian Package Bees
Olivarez Honey Bees (OHB) Italian queens have good honey production, gentle nature, and strong brood-rearing viabilities. They also possess the resilience to survive the winter months in a healthy condition while maintaining a good weight, ensuring their ability to bounce back quickly during spring.
Italian OHB bees bring their own set of special characteristics to enrich the hive environment. The following are their key traits:
- Gentle and easily manageable (a good beginner bee)
- Prolific brood producers
- Excellent hygienic behavior
- Skilled comb builders
- Superb foragers
- Excellent honey producers
- No cage exchange is necessary
See our installation guide here to help get your new Italian colony settled in.
OHB has infused the Minnesota Hygienic and the VSH traits into their Italian bees, ensuring enhanced resistance and tolerance to diseases and mites.
