Apis cenara is of similar size to Apis mellifera or slightly smaller (sometimes much smaller — I have seen ones in Thailand only a bit larger than the florea), and is cavity nesting.

Negli ultimi decenni la massiccia importazione nell'isola di api di razza ligustica, più adatte a un'apicoltura di tipo intensivo, ha compromesso l'integrità genetica delle popolazioni locali, tanto che oggi sono in atto iniziative per il recupero e la salvaguardia della sicula in purezza.
