    Default looking for gray haired bees

    I am looking for dark (black or near black) bees with white-ish or gray hairs. I believe that these are a strain of Carniolan honey bees. I once had a hive like this--they were very hairy, much more than my current hives. They were a good hive--very calm and did not require much of their stores over winter. At least that is how I remember them.

    Anyone have any of these dark bees with gray hair and sale queens from this stock?

    Thanks
    Kyle

    The silver colored black bees are usually Caucasians.

    I need to get in touch with the folks I got that first hive from and see if I can get some more queens from them if they still have silver haired, dark bees in their apiary.
