Italian queen honey bees start increasing their colony's population early in the spring, meaning many honey bees will be bringing back pollen and producing plenty of honey for the colony.


Italian bees do not swarm as much as other types of bees do. They usually don't start swarming until their second year in a hive, and only do it during the spring and summer seasons. They are also very laid back in nature and are the easiest honey bees to work with, making them ideal for beginner beekeepers to manage.

They were brought to other countries, including the United States, in 1859 and look very similar to the typical bees you see around pollinating plants.
