I bought a nuc this spring with a bred queen. She was supposed to be Carniolan. But as I look at the bees coming and going, I could never tell what breed of bee they were. After all the reading I've done on the internet about this subject I know no more how to identify the bees now than I did before. Not that it matters but it does peak my interest. Anybody else ask this question, or is anything simple?

I'm sure I'll never be able to identify the race of the bees in my hive by looking at them. I feel I always end up with a mixed breed as supercedures and swarms take place. Thank You Lindsey for your input, I am always curious how others see the subject.

The package and nuc I got were both mixed and included carni's buckfast, Italian & hygenic carni X. Carni's are suppose to be a grayish tan in color...my hive appear to have both these and what appear to be Italian the orange tan coloration also...
unless you purchase a 100 percent Carni it might be hard to tell.
