Alpha6, With all of the swarms and cutouts I did this last year I have not seen any AFHB in our area. I was in tulare county, Kings county, and Fresno county and everyone I have done have been very calm and good natured. One hive I had cut out of a garage wall had been there for 20 years that hive was huge. Tons of bees and very very gentle. My kids were running around with the bees not doing a thing to them and we were cutting them out of a wall. Anyway I have not seen any. But have been near some that have come in with pollination trucks from southern states and they are not nice at all. Thankfully I have not seen any and hope I dont in the near future. As not to long from now in a few months starts the swarm season.
