Three Italian hives and one feral cut-out hive.  I enjoy the feral hive most of all, probably because it was a labor of love getting them out of the garage wall they were in.  :shock:  Will probably stick with feral stock, when I can get them.

I pretty certain that they are all apis mellifera. :-D

Outside of that...just yer average tan and black honeybees.  I guess that means chances are they are mostly italians.
