the very best kind of bee is the ones in your hives.  I find bees belonging to anybody else worthless to me.

Here is a little article I found about the breeds of bees. I dont know if it will help but there is some good info in it.

http://www.tnbeekeepers.org/pubs/The%20Best%20Bee.pdf

By the way I had posted a similar document a long time ago but it had a grade scale, meaning 1-3,  on it Itilian/Russian/carnolian. Does anyone remember where I put it. I must have deleted it from my computer.

If I was in your location, I'd check and see if Michael Bush was selling any bees! Regardless, my first choice for type of bee would be "local bees", specifically, bees that are raised from survivor stocks in your particular area. I also recommend getting involved with local beeks:

Although online forums such as this are great sources of info, much of beekeeping is local, and nothing beats having a nearby mentor.

Good luck!
