Re: Baptism of fire today!
Well a big congrats with that being your introduction to bees and you are not ready to ride off in the sunset. It has not been my experience that bees are like that. at least not always. Give them a time when there is plenty of nectar to keep them busy and a queen to keep them content and you should find them to be a lot more enjoyable.
I do give you great chances of staying around though. My admiration.
