JPI don't see any smoke in the video.You said it was a rainy day.I don't see a spray bottle of sugar water being used.That's a prescription for aggressive behavior according to the big dogs I run with.RegardsJoe
I would pinch her in a heart beat if they are hot durning your next few inspections. Bees like that give beekeepers a bad name if neighbors get a taste of them and like you say in the video, those genetics are not needed in the local pool. I had a colony like that was like that in 2010 and would follow me about a hundred yards sometimes. I will never tolerate one like that again. I like to work with only a veil and no gloves if I can help it. I like to blow on the bees too when I want to see the comb they cover without my face being swarmed.Where was that video taken, louisiana? What state do you frequent with the bees?Thanks for the video!
