Saskatraz bees originate from Saskatchewan, Canada (hence their name) and have been commercially bred for almost 10 years.
The breed is supposed to show varroa mite resistance and more hygienic qualities (similar to Ankle-biters). Additionally, they are selected for honey production, wintering ability, temperament, and improved disease resistance (including brood diseases)
