NEW WORLD CARNIOLANS

OLD WORLD CARNIOLANS

CAUCASIANS

CARNI X MINN CROSS

Minn Hygenics

These will be of different crosses but they will be more suited for this area and will need less feeding. They will be very gentle and good honey producers and will show some mite resitance for none of them has been treated in the last four years. These are southern raised and southern bred and they have shown that they cluster in smaller groups and back fill the brood chamber with lots of honey. They also winter good in single deeps but i also keep a full super on them just to be on the safe side they may need some feeding but not much.
