excc309:
Looking for a queen or package of these bees...not having much luck.  Any sources that you know of?

sawdstmakr:
I doubt that you will find any. They are darn near extinct. Only a few pockets of them left, In Australia or New Zeland I think.
They are a very agressive bee.

beepro:
Scotland and England still have them.  It would be too far to get them though.  Beekeepers don't like those
aggressive bees.   Try to search for friends of the black bees online.   I once subscribed to a newsletter but nothing
has send out to me since 2 years ago.

Dallasbeek:
I see some black or very dark bees working flowers in my yards sometimes, but think they are feral bees.  They look a little smaller than Italian bees.  What I'm seeing are not solitary bees, but dark bees all over my sage blossoms.  Could these be what you are referring to and the kind that first were brought to America?

sawdstmakr:
American Indians called them white man?s flies. They did not like them at all.
