Hi! /wave

I am very excited to be here and i'm finding all the informative topics extremely helpful!

I heard African Bees are pretty aggressive so i'm nervous to say the least, but eager as ever!

Looks like there are a lot of great people here  grin

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

How far south are you? I have seen documentaries about the bees from the cape area, Apis Mellifera Capensis, that are totally different and become parasites to Apis Mellifera scutellata (african) bees.

Jim i'm Coastal - Kwazulu Natal. I read up on what you said, Check this: "The Cape Bees are also invasive bees which roam and invade the more prolific and productive Scutellata hives where they take over and eventually destroy the Scutellata swarm." - (Tried to provide link but i cant yet).

A lot of information i find says Africanized bee's are very aggressive. So AllenF I'll definitely be doing all the research and possibly some removals first to get used to their behavior.

I'm in no rush too as i am studying full time and working on the side. I will be sure to update you guys on my progress once it starts to come together  grin

Thanks for the Warm welcome everyone!
