Disease Resistant Bees

Tabor Hybrid Italians

Our reputation for Disease Resistant bees began with the Taber Italian.

This stock is selected for gentleness and tracheal mite resistance. It is a dark Italian which raises large brood nests in the spring but is not quick to swarm.

The bees are hygienic to clean up brood diseases at an early stage, before they spread and contaminate the colony. Our customers tell us that this line is an excellent honey producer.
