Neighbor Russian Queen Bee Was In My Tree With Her Drones. As you can see while the limb was still on the tree there were more drones. While holding a lot of the drones are in the air flying around. The Queen is somewhere in there. He has no doubt. I learned some things about bees I did not know and what tree in the neighbor hood Bees favor. The Russian Queen be I ‘d heard about, but the Italian Queen was a first for me. What would be considered a Hybrid Russian\Italian. If I understood correctly The Russian Queen mates with common male bees in the area. She can reproduce Queen Bees, with each generation pedigree is lost 1/2 and so on.
