Hi Joe, welcome to BeeSource. Carniolans would be good. Is there anywhere you can clear a spot so they get some sun during the day? What I did, before I picked up my bees, months before I picked up my bees, I set up my hives where I thought I would want them. Visited the empty hives several times a week, sometimes daily, at different times of the day. I could see how the hives sat in shadow, or sun, and how convenient it was to work on the hives. I ended up moving my hives to a better area, just 20 feet away, but it's easy to move an empty box, harder to move one with bees in it once they are established, and you've found you've put them in a crappy spot.
