Now I have 2 cents to contribute! I have two hives, I'm brand spanking new to this and was previously on the fence. When I open them to remove a frame, I put the whole radiation suite on, gloves and taped at the wrists. One hive is docile and causes me no isses, I only had one stinger in my left hand glove.

But the other, Cripes! Before I had the second frame out, I had six stingers in my left glove. I just put it all back together and chalked it as doing fine, albeit grumpy. Day was pretty, no other issues, nothing has been messing with them that I could tell, just mean it looks like. They've been odd, compared to the other hive, since they were loaded.
