Skunks can agitate a hive.
Is that memory?
Yes, on more than one occasion, I've had one bee seek me out after going through hive. brain memory? scent memory? If it were strictly scent from stings, wouldn't I have had more than one bee after me?
Just a thought...there is more than one type of memory.
I will say that I haven't had a kamikaze bee after me since I went glove/protectionless. Slower more deliberate movements = less agitated bees.
