About ELGON-bees

A common color of the queen is leather brown,
but both lighter and darker colored queens exist.
The color of the worker bees vary too.
Even if the color of the Monticola bee is dark and
some selection is done towards the darker side it
is other traits that are more important to select on.

Therefore the color is not so important and lighter varieties are present too.

Elgon bees are bees that are easy to handle,
collect a good crop of honey and bred for resistance to diseases and parasites.
It is a successful combination between the Buckfast bee, Monticola bees and Sahariensis bees.
