From a behavioral standpoint the Romanian honey bee (Carpathian) is a very gentle bee breed with a very quiet behavior on combs. It is characterized by the supesedure of the queen (anecbalie = natural periodic replacement of the queen). Is less prone to robbing and has an moderate instinct of swarming.
The sealing of the honey cells is predominantly “dry” and sometimes intermediate (mixed). It shows a pronounced predisposition to block the nest with honey, in case of harvest of high intensity, a biological feature that makes difficult to maintain the horizontal hives.
