  Buckfast bee   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The Buckfast hybrid bee was a honeybee developed by "Brother Adam", (born Karl Kehrle) in 1898 in Germany, who was in charge of beekeeping at Buckfast Abbey.
Bee populations were being decimated by "Isle of Wight" disease.
This condition, later called "acarine" disease, after the acarine parasitic mite that invaded the bees' tracheal tubes and shortened their lives, was killing off thousands of colonies in the British Isles in the early part of the 20th century.

Nectar and honey provides the energy for the bees flight muscles and for heating the hive during the winter period.
In many higher latitude locations it is difficult or impossible to winter over enough bees, or at least to have them ready for early blooming plants, so much of the migration is seasonal, with many hives wintering in warmer climates and moving to follow the bloom to higher latitudes.

The bee's stinger evolved primarily for inter-bee combat between members of different hives: a barbed stinger can penetrate the chitinous plates of another bee's exoskeleton and retract safely.

They are extremely gentle, and some authorities rate them higher than the Italians in most categories.
Their main drawbacks are that they have a strong tendency to lock combs together with brace combs, and they are very liberal in their application of propolis to inner surfaces of their hives, thus acting to defeat one of the main purposes of the modern beehive -- that combs should be easily removable for inspection.

Advances in molecular techniques and the understanding of honey bee (Apis mellifera) genetics have facilitated the study of ecological processes particularly involving mating and colony genetic structure.
We investigated possible spatial and temporal effects on genotype frequencies in four drone congregations located within three kilometers of 26 colonies of the local honey bee population and 44 colonies of the Buckfast hybrid.
These results have broad implications for local conservation efforts which attempt to preserve the genetic distinctiveness of native honey bee populations.
