I am getting ready to order packages so I can have my first hives in the spring. While discussing varietals and such with another beek, they advised against buying bees from apiaries where africanized honey bees have been documented, just in case you wind up with an africanized queen. ("Not the way you should start your beekeeping experience," he noted.)
So, I wanted to see if anyone has had experience with buying packages from areas with AHB (Texas, Florida, etc.) and finding their bees were particularly aggressive. Any insight would be appreciated!
