We distribute 3 and 4 lb packages of bees. 4 lb packages work out best for our Alaska customers, 3 lb packages are acceptable in the NW United States. This year if the demand for 4 # packages is greater we will be able to secure some 3 lb packs for Alaska but the 4 lb packs will be limited.

Bees are Italian, New World Carniolan, and Old World Carniolan.
In the US most large breeders cary Italian (Yellow) and Carniolan Honey Bees. The Italian and Carniolan bees (Black) are raised in the same yard. When breeding takes place the drones that mate with any queen are at random. The young that result from the mating can be black or yellow as the queen will mate with many drones. So the New World Carniolan is a cross-breed. These work well in the areas of Anchorage to Fairbanks. Most of the Italians sold go to the Warmer areas such as Fairbanks.
The Old Wold Carniolan bee is rasied in yard with only the Carniolan drone. Cross-breeding with other types of bees is less likley.
The Old World Carniolan Bee are more agressive in all ways. They will work harder in the cold and wet and they will come at you quicker if you bump the hive. In the Fairbanks hot dry weather they may be more likley to swarm. They are prefered in The SE area of Alaska such as Juneau and in the Anchorage area.
