Re: Is getting stung pretty common
When I have a hive that comes out to meet me when I arrive, I sell that queen down the river. You need to know that bee aggressiveness is widely variable. A single hive is capable of a wide range of aggressiveness, depending on variables mentioned above. Requeen a hive with a temper you do not like or is not suitable for its location.
That said, beekeepers get stung, regularly. Tolerance to stings varies widely within humans.
