This video is approximately 5 minutes after closing up the hive. i did use smoke but these bees are really angry and stay with me. one got inside the veil but didn't sting me.are they more protective if the queen is dead? i saw very little brood but a lot of honey and nectar. they are bring in plenty of pollen and the frames are noticeable heavier. my wife did get a few pictures before they exploded but then she split and shot threw the screen. they are too fuzzy unfortunately to tell very much.
