Re: I wish someone could define "aggressive bees"
In my opinion, it's all a matter of what you're willing to tolerate. Bees do tend to be 'moody', that is to say that their disposition can be different at times. Poor weather, nightfall, etc., tend to make them testy. Still, some colonies tend to be much calmer and more peaceful than others. They can be a pleasure to work with. However, I just bought a hive from a person who hadn't worked it for a couple of years - when I opened it up, they were immediately all over me. No amount of smoke, no amount of protective gear could keep them off of me. I got 8 stings in a matter of three minutes through a complete bee suit. This hive is agressive and they're getting a new queen just as soon as I can double suit and find that old queen!
Once the bee is inside, Mr. Veil is no longer your friend.
