What transistors have a very low switching current?

I need a transistor that "switches" when I apply around 0.5 volts/1-10 milliamps to its base? 2N3904 transistors require too high of a switching current(is that what it's called?). Does anyone have suggestions?

Here is a great reference.

Where does it tell me how many amps/volts it needs to switch?

Every transistor i have ever researched has a data sheet, so if you look at the data sheet for the ON CHARACTERISTICS it tells you the specs.

I meant what characteristic describes the switching current(vbe, vceo, etc), not where to find it. Sorry for my bad wording.
Mosfets need no base current
