I think I'll be able to handle these now. I've got a good walking cast, and am surprised at the mobility I have.
I actually worked my bees today. I went to transfer one of the colonies I had up for adoption, and decided it was way too hot to keep. Definitely AHB, and I don't have a remote bee yard for nasty bees to be their mean selves.
Anyhow, I eliminated that colony. I wouldn't wish them on someone else! I did get almost a kilo of capped honey out of the deal, though (from their brood combs). They'd been in a cardboard box for scarcely a month.
Seriously, they were really hot bees. :shock:
