This is my first year with buckfast bees. I have always raised italian bees in the past 5 years. I researched the buckfast bees and understood them to be a gentle bee. I have 2 hives of the buckfast and 2 of the italian. The buckfast bees are very agressive and downright mean. They will attack me in my garden which is 30-50 feet away. when working with them with the smoker, they will still sting me through my bee suit. Should I requeen them this year or next spring.I know one has already swarmed around the week of july 4th and I have seen a new queen in this hive. Anyone else had this problem of agressiveness with buckfast or am I just the lucky one? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, REM
