I have but one hive and it is gangbusters. I have only a few months experience and have never experienced bees before. I know from reading; big colony defends hive, dearth-cranky, inclement weather and predators. Right? But what is an average bad experience? 20 or 30 bees bumping your veil? What about bees just buzzing all around you? Or following you 20 50 feet away? No stinging through clothes but was completely different from before or are these normal signs of a big hive? Thanks just trying to understand whats ok and not ok.
