    Default What kind of bee?

    I'm located in the Philippines and it gets very hot and humid here. I was wondering what kind of bee is sturdy enough to survive these conditions.
    I was thinking of the Italian bee (Apis mellifera ligustica) or the Russian honeybee but I know some beekeepers in the country who keep the local species of bees which are the Apis cerana and Apis dorsata. Any suggestions?

    Italians are an adaptable breed and are already used in similiar conditions to yours. Russians developed for very different conditions and I would not suggest them. I have absolutely no knowledge of the Dorsata or Cerana bees. Good luck.
