What are Russian bees?

Russian Honey Bees were brought to the U.S. during the mid 1990's and were selected and bred because of their resistance to tracheal and Varroa mites. 

Mark Guenther and Danny Brewer are members of the Russian Honeybee Breeders Association (RHBA). The RHBA certifies members who have demonstrated they can consistently produce queens that keep mite numbers low and pass a DNA test for purity. While some people may sell "Russian Bees", only certified members of the RHBA have access to all lines of Russian bees and can breed pure Russian bees.
