After you harvest your honey and you place the frames and boxes out for the bees to clean things up where do you place them? Near a hive or away from them all. I ask b/c yesterday I placed 6 boxes with frames out away from all the hives and in no time there were bees everywhere on them and even some fighting was going on. Quickly they were aggressive. Usually they are not aggressive at all. How do you all usually do this?

thanks in advance,
