I am late to this discussion.
I am not a bee expert but have been around a hive or two.
Some bees people keep that come from southern European types tend to be a little sneaky and steal from other weaker hives in raids if they can ( pressure to do this comes from not enough flowers ).
The bees from hotter climates are often a bit more aggressive.
These are the bees the commercial keepers use because they are very good for pollinating farmers fields up here.
Darker colour bees you see are often from German Polish ect another north eastern strains. ( where is east ??? in retrospect)
Tolerant of higher latitudes and colder climate.
Some people buy queens specially breed for being being easy to handle. ( or for traits like resistance to parasites )
This is a smart option.
If you buy a queen from a domesticated stock of bee you can expect they will behave a certain way.
If you introduce this queen to a hive that excepts it they next generation of bees will behave like the queen.
Russian bees where you have trouble with parasites, but not highly productive bees
We have those in my part of Canada domesticated used for honey production.
They are good tough bees and resist parasites that are causing a lot of trouble for folks with the Europeans types of bee.
Wild bees also make honey
But like feral bees if you harvest their honey you kill their colonies and you are going to get stung.
Once they go wild bees become more aggressive without people to tend to them and select out the undesirable traits.
You can not predict what wild bees will do.
They have been breeding wild with what ever types of bees have been successful in the area around you.
but this does not mean they will be easy to deal with, they might be mean bees!
I have a derelict shed on my property I should take down but last few years I have had a colony of bumble bees set up inside.
Bumble bees are under threat and all wild bees need our help.
These are not at all like domesticated bees.
The bees inside behave more individually even though they have a queen.
Each worker can become a queen if she decides to strike off on her own.
They make fantastic honey, but not very much of it and you will kill the colony if you try and take it.
I have tried a few times to make a sort of hive and see if I can convince them to move in.
They never do, I guess they do not like the idea of being in a box or any sort of hive that is exposed.
Walls they like and low down under floors…
Bumble bees are easy to piss off!!!
But I enjoy watching them work around my home.
Individually at work they are interesting to watch.
They have apple trees, and wild flowers to keep them busy.
Support your local bees…
