    Mine are a bit defensive as well, I took a stroll down to the hives yesterday with no protection and was leaning on one of the hives while watching their cleansing flight and a guard took after me, I didn't get a foot away when she got me in the throat, needless to say but I was packing my butt out of there before I stirred up more of them. They are testy right now.

    Tis the season I guess. Was out in the bee yard today because it will be the last time I see 60 until who knows when. Saw a hive that had less activity than the others so thought "Ill just reduce that entrance a little more." They seemed to take great offense at me thinking they needed a smaller opening. Before I could even move I had 3 in my beard, at least 2 more hit me in the back as I was running away. I now agree with them, that opening is just the right size
