Dear Sri Senthil,

In general , in any variety of Honey bee swarm, a queen bee with support of male bees, service bees will live together. Rarely queen bees also born but after maturity it never try/accept to share with another queen bee. Hence one queen bee goes out with some male bees and service bees and open a new swarm .
Apis Mellifera , an Italian variety Honey bee, which is well grown in bee hives by our indian bee farmers. It is doing well in our north/south indian conditions.
You can have full details either in KVIC, Vijayarai,Andhrapradesh or TNAU,Periyakulam, Tamilnadu.
with best wishes, g.p.rao, farmer
