The Carnica is a superb bee which can be as calm and productive/ prolific as the Buckfast bee. You have to manage them slightly differently to the Buckfast because of their inclination to swarm. However, if controlled correctly they can be a great asset to your apiary, making for great cell raisers and good colonies for gathering a spring crop due to their rapid early build up, early in the year. Just make sure that you don't cross their drones with a more 'yellow' bee such as ligustica or buckfast queens. It can result in a slightly nastier cross, in my experience. I shall be ordering some and reviewing them further!!
