The Hybrid's resulting daughter queens are half Italian and half Carniolan. The characteristics of the resulting hybrid daughter queens tend to favor the queenside of the cross.  These queens are real “workhorses” and are very popular among commercial beekeepers.  They combine many of the desirable qualities from each strain and work well as a dual-purpose bee for both honey production and pollination.
