Being in Africa, and not knowing what the type bees you have
African killer bees of course
Actually the bees we have here are the nice ones and keep to themselves. I suspect they are very similar you your's, if you don't hassle them they won't attack. If you're on their wrong side they do stand together tho.
The Cape province have a bee that would invade other bees. If there are some invading I think one would see a type of war going and some dead bees. None of that here.
The reason for me thinking they were afterswarming is I saw a few drones buzzing around the hive, possibly from another hive. These were fiercely attacked by the bees, even looked like aerial tackles !
In case of an afterswarm, does it mean that more than one queen moved into a hive ? The hive was occupied for about a month, could a new queen emerge that quickly from scratch ? Sounds a bit soon.
I have very little bee experience but would want to learn a lot more. So pls tell me everything you know
