keeping Africanized Honey bees out of area

I was thinking, while I understand that africanized bees are comming and for good, if I dedicate 2 or 3 frames of drone brood to flood the area with " friendly " drones to provide a better advantage to attempt to mate the queens with gentler strains of bees. Think that may work to offset the approaching AHB.

Yeah, did infact read that africanized drones are more the athlete then our lazier drones, but with that said can it be bad to have potential dating pool for our queens--we know that drones congegate in certian areas, and that queens seek out those area--what I don't know is do africanized drones go to these same areas, if so then of course they would appear to have the upper hand again.
