Friendliest / Friendly Bees?
Ive been beekeeping for more than ten years. Started with a Buckfast package from B Weaver. Trying to find a friendlier more productive variety I later on I ordered an All-American queens from R Weaver, then all-star from a different breeder (only to discover that its all-American and they buy from R Weaver). In the past few years the bees have been absolutely nasty despite introducing NWC queens.
somehow I'm becoming more allergic to multiple stings. I'm wondering what do you guys recommend as friendly to handle and productive variety and why do you like it and whom do you recommend me buying from?
We don't need to worry about winter hardiness since I'm in southern California.
Thank you so much in advance for your suggestions.
It's like a book, I think, this bloomin' world, Which you can read and care for just so long, But presently you feel that you will die, Unless you get the page you're readin' done, an' turn another - likely not so good; But what you're after is to turn 'em all.
