    Hi Pastor Mike,

    Have you tried the referance link on this site?

    http://www.beesource.com/suppliers/usbees.htm

    I think there are some listed there that sell caucasians. I would double check any Consumer Reports part of this site contact the suppliers to get your impression and make your own decision. Good Luck!!

    If Caucasion bees weren't so gentle, they'd have nothing else going for them. Caucasion bees are a high maintanance bee. These bees are very suseptable to nosema, they use overkill quantity of propolis (though if thats what you want to collect then these bees are for you), and unlike the carniolans or italians, they will swarm before any of the queen cells are capped thus giving a beek a very narrow window for swarm control.
