I really liked the video Dallas, I just would like to see more cooperation between pest operators and beekeepers, since your state has decided that ahb is a pest control issue. I think the pcos should be trained or accompanied by beekeepers so they don't spray everything that moves that has a stinger.

It seems the state has adopted the spray now ask questions later mentality, not a good thing for the feral Europeans.

 JP, I'm with you on that. No need to get rid of them if they are not the AFH.

Also, we the small beekeepers, need to take notice to any aggressive colony we have and have them tested. I understand the genes are dominant and progressive.
So I think this means that if you rear a Queen from a yard that has just a bit of afh  then the offspring will be worse."IF" I understand it correctly.
