Mike, bees will run regardless of you smoking them or not but smoking them takes the edge off. I highly recommend applying smoke if you see any aggression. I have done many without even a puff but the smoker definitely has its place.
For the love of God, go buy you a small bucket & fill that sucker up with preferably warm to hot water to remove honey from your tools and your gloves. That little tip goes a long way buddy!
That second one was a dandy, the first one, better you than me!
Keep up the good work!
