Which race of bees tend to do better in TBHs?
I built two TBHs this year, too late to catch any swarms for them...so...I'd like to start fresh with a package...but which does better in TBHs?
I am in Tennessee, need to order some packages for next year.
Can anyone recommend nearby sources, hopefully with email or web pages, no more than a state away, say, for package bees?
I used to use York, but they are apparently out of business now.
Not married to the idea of Italians necessarily, have some experience with caucasians, but have had good luck with Italians in the past. Additional disease resistance would be a plus, however.
Thanks in advance for any advice, recommendations, plugs, etc!
