Re: Buckfast bees
I too prefer more docile bees. Have you been around many colonies to know the range of aggressiveness available to you? I have RWeaver Buckfast & BWeaver bees too. They are average in aggressiveness, about the same as bees I had in the 70's and 80's. They do quite a bit of head butting and do have the odd gaurd bee set on stinging me, but its nothing to panic about. They both wintered well with plenty of stores left this week.
