Would be great to have a country by country list of bee species available.
In Australia we have:
- Italian (apis mellifera ligustica)
- Caucasian (apis mellifera caucasica)
- Carniolan (apis mellifera carnica)
- European Dark (apis mellifera mellifera)
They all have different traits useful for the conditions of your local area, how do you decide on which species to buy or adapt your existing colony to?
