My bee's are normally cool and don't even pay me any attention when I get with a foot of the entrance. Today I went to observe and they sent guard bees out after me and I got stung and chased 200 feet.
Yesterday I had to take all the components apart trying to make a split. Could ot do it due to comb bridging so I put it back together. I had a bout 6 swarm cells that were closed. I may have crushed them or at least a few.
Is that what made them so mad and how long til they settle down?
