I just installed three packages of Italians. The installation seemed to go very well, as a matter of fact it was quite memorable (in a good way). I went out later to just see what was going on. When you get ten or so feet from the back of one of the hives they come after you, and they mean to sting. I gave them some time and went back out and the same thing. They'll follow you all the way back to the house, 75 feet or so. It is supposed to rain tomorrow, I wonder if that's the problem. I would hate to have to suit up just to feed them. If there is anyone out there with more experience than me (which is almost everyone) I would like some advice. Gary
