I 'rescued' a swarm today and these girls were [hot]. I got stung 7 times (partly my fault for wearing shorts) but more so they were just bombing my veil and would follow me a good ways from their swarm and for several minutes.
So, my question is, will/could they calm down or should I take more desperate measures? I could smite their queen right away assuming I did get her and then let them build their own from some brood from the other hives I have or should I give them a bit of time?
This is only my 4th capture, but I've never experienced even 1/10th of what I did today.
