Are bees alarmed by someone's natural body oder. The reason I ask is last week I picked up a NUC. The guy I bought it from was not being attacked by the bees. As soon as I got out of the truck I had a couple warning me. I hurried and put on my suit. we looked in the hive and they were all in my face and hitting me. I looked over at him and there wasn't even one on him. I got nailed 5 times. ok, I thought maybe I had some sents on my suit from the last year... I got home and washed my suit and got a new pair of gloves. Yesterday I checked my NUC, another hive and dumped a swarm in a hive. I had a few get after me ( not like when picking up my NUC). My dad (scared I'm going to have a bad reaction to a sting so he goes with me if I'm thinking of bees,,, not complaining!) was wearing a freakin T-shirt the whole time. He came out without a single sting and he was 2 ft. away from me while I searched for the queens. Now why could someone be able to be unprotected and not get stung and another be suited up and get attacted quite often. These hives are not hot. Any answers?
