Gray mountain Caucasian bees

In the mountains, valleys and forests of the Caucasus, Caucasian bees live in a wild state. They are bred mainly in the southern regions of the country. The bees are light gray, silvery. They are smaller than the Central Russian bees, more long-legged. By nature, peaceful, calm. Even on the saute taken out of the nest, they continue to work, as if nothing had happened: to feed the larvae, compact the pollen, dance, and the uterus can lay eggs, while the Central Russian bees, as opposed to the Caucasian, usually leave the honeycomb, piles fall to the bottom of the hive.

Gray Caucasian bees, like any other living on Earth, have a very long proboscis. It reaches 7.2 mm. This allows them to extract nectar from long-tubular flowers, including red clover. In places where this forage culture is cultivated, they try to breed long-tailed Caucasian bees. At one time they were even called red-cheeked bees. The gray bees of

the Caucasus, in comparison with the Central Russian, lay less eggs, so the blossoming of the main honey-plants that give a lot of honey, families do not reach a large mass.

Southern bees have a hard time suffering from long winters and are more likely to experience intestinal diseases.

On such powerful nectarines as the lime tree, they work half-heartedly, prefer the grass meadow flora and are more adapted to it. Buckwheat is almost never visited. This culture is unknown to them. In their homeland, it was never cultivated.
