I think adequate food sources and a long enough season to collect enough stores are generally more important than a specific climate.

I think bees can survive everywhere from the equator to southern Canada. There are a few people that can keep bees in Alaska, but it is not common. I think the big issue in Alaska is the forging season is short and the winters are long.

In what reguard are you referencing fullest? I tend to get one big hive every year (lots of honey) but I know there are people that do better than me. For packages and nucs, California seems to be a common source, but there are places thru out the US where you can get bees

Depends if your area is clear cut farms rice and houses, or it's a location with good quality
