>It is also a proven fact that EHB venom is more potent than AHB venom!
I don't think so. They are identical. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to show the difference between EHB and AHB on ANY level. The typical method of ID is to look at cell size and bee size, which, as all the small cell people know, is bunk. There have ALWAYS been some hot bees from time to time BEFORE the AHB showed up. Just more of them now. So even temperament, while a good indicator that the queen should be destroyed anyway, is not a very good indicator of AHB.
